AllMusic Review by

George Shearing's popular Quintet (with vibraphonist Emil Richards, guitarist Toots Thielemans, bassist Al McKibbon and drummer Percy Brice) is joined by the congas of Armando Peraza for a variety of melodic and rhythmic pieces. Highlights of this easy-listening but enjoyable LP include "Perfidia," "Mambo with Me," "Old Devil Moon," "Cuban Love Song" and even "Poodle Mambo."
