AllMusic Review by

Tenor great Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis teams up with altoist Michel Attenoux (whose sound looks toward Tab Smith and Johnny Hodges) and his French sextet for a hard-swinging set of standards. With fine solos also contributed by trumpeter Patrick Artero and trombonist Claude Gousset, Davis romps on such numbers as Neal Hefti's "Splanky," "Flying Home" and "Shiny Stockings." Excellent modern swing, released for the first time on this 1992 CD.
