AllMusic Review by

This lesser-known set from the now-defunct Ken label features the fluent and creative trombonist Conrad Herwig, who is joined by the harmonically advanced pianist Richie Beirach, bassist Ron McClure and drummer Adam Nussbaum. The music ranges from introspective ballads to a swinging version of the lone standard "I'm Getting Sentimental Over You." Herwig is mostly in the spotlight and he rises to the occasion, excelling on the complex straight-ahead material.
