AllMusic Review by

Although the backup trio, pianist Scott Bradford, drummer Hartwig Bartz, and bassist Larry Gales is fairly anonymous, flugelhornist Clark Terry is in typically exuberant form, performing five standards, a German folk song, and his own "Jazzhouse Blues." The lengthy versions of "Perdido," "On the Trail," "Wham," and "Take the 'A' Train" all find Terry in prime form, coming up with plenty of creative ideas on songs that he had already performed a countless number of times. This Pausa LP contains music originally put out on the MPS label.
