AllMusic Review by

Although guitarist Joe Pass was usually heard in unaccompanied settings during his Pablo years, there were occasional departures. In this case, Pass is teamed in a pianoless quartet with vibraphonist Milt Jackson, bassist Ray Brown, and drummer Mickey Roker. Considering the musicians involved, it's no surprise that the music always swings. The group performs four originals (including two blues), "Lady Be Good," "The Man I Love," and Carl Perkins' "Grooveyard." Jackson and Pass blend together quite nicely, and their interplay, along with the stimulating support of Brown and Roker, is reason enough for bop collectors to want this.
