AllMusic Review by

The talented multi-instrumentalist Ira Sullivan made a rare return to Chicago for this set, performing with pianist Jodie Christian, guitarist Simon Salz, bassist Dan Shapera and drummer Wilbur Campbell. Switching between trumpet, flugelhorn, soprano and flute, Sullivan performs a couple of originals and four standards including the bop classic "That's Earl, Brother." This is a more straight-ahead than usual program of music by the adventurous improviser.
