AllMusic Review by

The music on this LP has been reissued several times (including on Premier, and on CD by Drive Archive). Herbie Mann (flute, alto flute, clarinet, and tenor) and Buddy Collette (flute, alto flute, clarinet, tenor, and alto) constantly switch instruments on the fairly basic material which mixes together recent works with originals and a couple of standards. With the assistance of pianist Jimmy Rowles, bassist Buddy Clark, and drummer Mel Lewis, Mann and Collette "battle" to a tie, creating light but substantial music.
