AllMusic Review by

For this blowing session, trombonist Jimmy Knepper performs with an all-star quintet comprised of Lew Tabackin on tenor and a touch of flute, pianist Roger Kellaway, bassist Monty Budwig and drummer Shelly Manne. These veterans have little difficulty coming up with fresh statements on the six familiar chord changes that they interpret. The hard-charging Tabackin matches very well with Knepper's sly trombone; they should have a rematch someday.
