AllMusic Review by

One of pianist Ramsey Lewis' most satisfying jazz albums of his pre-"The In Crowd" days, this LP features the pianist, bassist Eldee Young, and drummer Red Holt jamming on a variety of standards (including "Old Devil Moon," "I'll Remember April," and "But Not for Me"), plus "Carmen," "Delilah," and "Folk Ballad." The trio stretches out a little more during the live date than they did in the studio, and they seem inspired by the audience. As with most of Lewis' early Argo/Cadet releases, this has not been reissued yet on CD, but the excellent LP can probably be found in budget bins.
