AllMusic Review by

In this studio set with bassist Buster Williams and the occasional vocals of Cynthia Tyson, pianist Mary Lou Williams performs a full set of original blues. A certain sameness is heard after a while, but in general the music is quite stimulating, showing that Williams (even this late in her career) had not lost her power and authority at the keyboard.
