AllMusic Review by

Dick Wellstood and Dick Hyman team up for a set of piano duos on this valuable German import Lp. Wellstood ranked with Ralph Sutton as the top stride pianist to emerge since World War II. while Hyman has proven that he can play any style with the best. In addition to individual features (Hyman has "A Foggy Day" while Wellstood interprets Sidney Bechet's "Quincy Street Stomp"), they play eight often-stunning duos. Highpoints include "The Sheik Of Araby," "Somebody Stole My Gal," "Dinah," "I've Found A New Baby" and the title cut. Very exciting music.
