AllMusic Review by

This out-of-print LP (the music also appeared on the Bell label) gave Dick Cary an opportunity to show off his versatility. Cary plays trumpet, alto horn and piano in a septet also including Bob Wilber (on clarinet and tenor), tenor saxophonist Al Cohnand baritonist Ernie Caceres and Cary contributed five of the eight selections. The music is essentially modern swing, using some updated harmonies but having the spirit of prebop jazz.
