AllMusic Review by

This LP contains a rare small-group session from late in his career. Switching between clarinet, soprano and alto, Herman is the lead voice throughout these five extended jams on standards. Joined by a six-piece rhythm section including vibraphonist Lionel Hampton, pianist Roland Hanna and guitarist Al Caiola, he is in fine form on this fun session.
