AllMusic Review by

This album, as with all of Calliope's releases, has the music from two television shows in the late '50s. Altoist Benny Carter and the Terry Gibbs Quartet stretch out on three songs apiece, Jo Reynolds takes a couple of vocals (in a style similar to Anita O'Day) and the Pete Jolly Trio is showcased on two numbers. The straightahead music on this LP is enjoyable and somewhat historic if not really all that essential.
