AllMusic Review by

Kenny Drew's Matrix label debuted with this excellent session from violinist Svend Asmussen, an underrated but talented swing stylist. Asmussen, pianist Drew, bassist Niels Pedersen and drummer Ed Thigpen mix together swing with some more modern material including "Django," "Donna Lee" and "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life" on the enjoyable program. This hard-to-find Lp is worth picking up by fans of the jazz violin.
