AllMusic Review by

Starting off with the classic song "Minor Swing" by Django Reinhardt, Stephane Grappelli, and the Quintet of the Hot Club of France, this collection from Madacy Entertainment presents the blue side of jazz. Songs from Lionel Hampton, Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson (with Otis Spann), and Bennie Moten's Kansas City Orchestra help round out the compilation. Other contributions come from true bluesmen like T-Bone Walker and Lonnie Johnson, whose song "The Loveless Blues" is the highlight of the album.
