AllMusic Review by

This set from the short-lived JUCU label features clarinetist Pete Fountain heading a quintet comprised of Frank Flynn on marimbas, guitarist Bob Bain, bassist Ray Leatherwood and drummer Jack Sperling. Alternating standards (ranging from Dixieland to "Just Friends") with some lesser-known material, Fountain seems a bit inspired by the unusual instrumentation and he comes up with some fiery solos. This LP will be hard to find but it is one of Fountain's better-efforts from the 1980s.
