AllMusic Review by

The hook for this Stash LP is that, even though it utilizes a veteran rhythm section (pianist Hank Jones, guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli, bassist Milt Hinton and drummer Louie Bellson) and a pair of younger but tradition-minded horns (trumpeter Jon Faddis and tenor saxophonist Bob Malach), all eight songs they play (including three by Bellson) are of recent vintage. The music is actually very much in the bop/swing tradition, and none of the originals caught on, but the performances can be enjoyed by straight-ahead jazz fans.
