AllMusic Review by

Jimmy Heath (switching between tenor, soprano and flute) holds his own with Sonny Stitt (who as usual double on tenor and alto) for this quintet set with pianist Barry Harris, bassist Richard Davis and drummer Roy Haynes. Stitt sounds fairly relaxed throughout, Heath is a strong and contrasting foil and the repertoire (five mostly underplayed standards plus Stitt's "A Cute One") is fairly fresh. A good session of 1970s bop.
