AllMusic Review by

Red Callender's first date as a leader in 11 years (and only second in 26) is a relaxed trio set with pianist Gerry Wiggins and drummer Sherman Ferguson. The veteran bassist (also heard on tuba on a couple of numbers, including "Lush Life") does an effective job of singing "Baby, I'm Gone." With Wiggins providing some sly wit and swinging solos influenced at times by Erroll Garner and Art Tatum and Ferguson fine in support, this is a highly enjoyable trio outing.
