AllMusic Review by

Clarinetist Pete Fountain's group expands from a quartet to a septet on this enjoyable LP with the addition of trumpeter Charlie Teagarden, trombonist Moe Schneider and tenor great Eddie Miller. The music falls between Dixieland and swing as Fountain leads the spirited crew through a dozen songs, including his own "Bye Bye Bill Bailey," "High Society," "Struttin' With Some Barbeque," "Milenberg Joys" and "When You're Smiling." Dixieland fans will want to search for this album, along with many of Fountain's other Coral LPs.
