AllMusic Review by

Violinist Joe Venuti's second recording with Italian guitarist Lino Patruno's group follows the initial one by three years. The standards (which include a Gershwin medley) are all quite familiar, but these versions are full of enthusiasm and interesting ideas. Venuti was in top form throughout his final period (1969-77) and seemed to enjoy interacting with the five other horns on this session, not yet reissued on CD.
