AllMusic Review by

This completely unknown recording (which is not even listed in discographies) from the Dutch Jazz Life label contains some brilliant music. Clarinetist Tony Scott and pianist Horst Jankowski match together very well, and the rhythm section (which is otherwise unidentified) is perfectly supportive of the lead voices. Recorded live in Ljubljana, Slovenia, the music (three standards and four basic group originals) finds Scott in particularly inspired form. He romps through the uptempo pieces, and his tone is often at its coolest during the more thoughtful numbers. Although this 1990 CD is quite obscure and there are no significant liner notes, the music is quite rewarding and frequently exciting.
