AllMusic Review by

At the time of this live session, Barnet was playing gigs only on an occasional basis and recording infrequently. This set really puts the emphasis on his improvising for he is heard as the only horn with a quartet (pianist Arnold Ross, bassist Bob Burteaux and drummer Roy Roten). On this fine showcase, Barnet sounds excellent on a variety of veteran standards (he was always underrated as a player) and is in spirited form.
