AllMusic Review by

This collector's LP features guitarist Les Paul at the height of his jazz period, performing a dozen numbers with his quartet of the time (which probably includes pianist Milt Raskin, rhythm guitarist Cal Gooden, Jr. and bassist Clinton Nordsight). A brilliant guitarist no matter what style he was exploring, Paul sounds perfectly at home playing such swing standards as "Stompin' at the Savoy," "All of Me," "Coquette," and "Limehouse Blues." A few of these concise radio transcriptions were later reissued on a Laserlight CD, but completists will want this swinging set.
