AllMusic Review by

Trumpeter Jonah Jones and his regular quartet of the period (which includes pianist Teddy Brannon, bassist John Brown and drummer George Foster) performs their usual mixture of swing standards, jump originals and current pop tunes in likable fashion. This LP has two Jones vocals ("Blueberry Hill" and "I'll Always Be in Love With You") and enjoyable, if lightweight, versions of "Moten Swing," "The Surrey with the Fringe on Top" and "Do You Know What It Means to Miss New Orleans." It can probably be found at a budget price.
