For this quintet set with pianist John Bunch, guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli, bassist Bob Haggart and drummer Tony DeNicola, clarinetist Kenny Davern performs eight veteran jazz standards, seven of which he had never documented before. Davern is in typically swinging form, alternating a few romps with slower material. Highlights include "That Rhythm Man," "Three Little Words" and Eubie Blake's "You're Lucky to Me." A typically excellent outing by the great clarinetist.
