AllMusic Review by

This is a live album that should interest collectors. The warm baritone ballad singer Johnny Hartman is heard on four concise numbers backed by pianist Andrew Hill's trio (with bassist John Mixon and drummer Gene Gamage). In addition there are two lengthy improvisations from Hill that give the innovative pianist an opportunity to stretch out and allows listeners to hear how he sounded prior to his Blue Note recordings.
