AllMusic Review by

This excellent but out-of-print Inner City release of material originally cut for Vogue features the great Lucky Thompson exploring a dozen standards in France with the assistance of vibraphonist Michel Hausser, pianist Martial Solal, guitarist Jean Pierre Sasson, either Pierre Michelot or Benoit Querson on bass and drummer Gerard Pochonet. A superior blowing session, Thompson makes such veteran songs as "I Can't Give You Anything but Love," "I Cover the Waterfront," "Undecided" and "Indian Summer" sound quite fresh, alive and swinging.
