AllMusic Review by

Trumpeter Bobby Shew and some of his favorite Los Angeles-based players of the early 1980s (tenor saxophonist Gordon Brisker, keyboardist Bill Mays, bassist Bob Magnusson, drummer Dick Berk and percussionist David Levine) perform five group originals, plus Clifford Brown's "La Rue," on this spirited modern mainstream Jazz Hounds LP, which is unfortunately long out of print. "Surprise Samba" is a highlight.
