AllMusic Review by

For this date, Mark Murphy mixes together a few standards (including "There'll Be Some Changes Made" and a medley of "Misty" and "Midnight Sun," which features Grady Tate also singing) with some offbeat material (Abbey Lincoln's "Living Room," Dave Frishberg's "Our Love Rolls On" and a three-song L.A. medley). This time around, Murphy is joined by a sextet including trumpeter Ted Curson, tenorman Gerry Niewood and keyboardist David Braham. The rather humorous, Louis Jordan-associated "Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chickens" is a highlight.
