AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

For this very interesting LP, the legendary but underrated tenor saxophonist Warne Marsh is heard in two different settings. Marsh and pianist Sal Mosca (who was heavily influenced by Marsh's former teacher Lennie Tristano) perform four duets (two originals apiece), and on the flip side of the album, Marsh, Mosca, bassist Sam Jones and drummer Roy Haynes stretch out during a concert for "Background Music" (based on "All of Me") and "She's Funny That Way." The music ranges from introspective to more driving, but it swings throughout, and Marsh's solos are always intriguing.
