AllMusic Review by

This 1979 Biograph LP (seven of the eight numbers have since been reissued by the label on CD) features some exciting if "cool" performances by tenorman Zoot Sims and valve trombonist Bob Brookmeyer in a quintet with pianist John Williams, bassist Milt Hinton and drummer Gus Johnson. Highlights include "September in the Rain," "Them There Eyes" and several of Sims's fairly basic originals including the medium-tempo blues "One to Blow On." The LP is filled with swinging music that features some exciting jammed ensembles.
