AllMusic Review by

After too few records (none since 1969), the great stride pianist Ralph Sutton recorded much more frequently, starting with five albums in 1975. This excellent solo set features Sutton playing a medley of Willard Robison songs along with numbers associated with Willie "the Lion" Smith, Bob Zurke, Bix Beiderbecke ("In the Dark"), Meade Lux Lewis and Fats Waller. Among the high points (in addition to the Robison medley) are "Echoes of Spring," "Honky Tonk Train Blues" and "Viper's Drag."
