AllMusic Review by

This fine straight-ahead LP from the obsolete Famous Door label matches the warm trombone of George Masso with a couple of stimulating horn soloists (trumpeter Glenn Zottola and altoist Chris Woods) and a swinging rhythm section (pianist Derek Smith, bassist Linc Milliman and drummer Ronnie Bedford). Together they perform five familiar standards, including "Stairway to the Stars" and "C Jam Blues," plus Masso's "Destination Stamford, U.S.A." Fine swing-oriented mainstream jazz that deserves to someday be reissued on CD.
