AllMusic Review by

Hawkins is heard during this concert performance near the end of his career and shortly before the steep decline that resulted in his death. Joined by the Earl Hines Trio on this LP from the collector's label Pumpkin, Hawkins is in surprisingly good form on five standards, displaying the tone that had made him the main influence on all saxophonists 40 years earlier.
