AllMusic Review by

The recording quality on this LP is not flawless, the liner notes (which do not list the recording date) are somewhat irrelevant and Dexter Gordon's rhythm section (keyboardist George Duke, bassist Ralph Garrett and drummer Oliver Johnson) is not perfectly suited to his music but the great tenor plays fairly well on the four extended performances. This obscure session (not essential but worthwhile) is highlighted by "Blue Monk" an "The Shadow of Your Smile."
