AllMusic Review by

Pete Fountain plays a dozen songs associated with seven different clarinetists ranging from Benny Goodman and Woody Herman to Irving Fazola and even Ted Lewis. Backed by a big band directed by Bud Dant on some of the selections, Fountain is in excellent form playing in his own swing/Dixieland style. Unfortunately this LP, as with all of his enjoyable Coral dates, is long out-of-print but might be found at secondhand record stores.
