AllMusic Review by

At the time this music was released on Riverside, the six performances of blues by trumpeters had not been issued before. It was reissued on this album as part of the OJC series and since that time some of these selections have appeared as "bonus cuts" along with the other numbers recorded at the same sessions. However this album is worth getting, for it has excellent performances by Clark Terry (who uses pianist Thelonious Monk as one of his sidemen on "Fluegelin' the Blues"), Blue Mitchell, Nat Adderley, Kenny Dorham and two by Chet Baker.
