AllMusic Review by

Originally released on Progressive and reissued in 1997 as an Audiophile CD (with one additional selection) pianist Jimmy Rowles is heard in a set of duets with bassist George Mraz. As usual, Rowles' playing is harmonically sophisticated. He performs a few standards, two of his compositions, and four by Wayne Shorter. Rowles takes three unique vocals, including one on the memorable and whimsical title track. The pianist recorded a lot during the late 1970s, making one definitive statement after another in relaxed fashion. Recommended.
