AllMusic Review by

Percussion on Stage features very mainstream big-band arrangements of show tunes, with the percussion gimmick usually tacked on at the beginning (an opening xylophone or bongo soon disappears for good). Compared to Hugo Montenegro's whacked-out arrangements on the same label, Maury Laws plays it safe, reminiscent of his stint at Hallmark. Pleasant and cute, but disposable.
