AllMusic Review by

Ray Bryant, although he has made many fine trio albums through the years, is at his best when playing unaccompanied solos. For this album Bryant introduces such original old timey blues as "In De Back Room" and "Blues In De Big Brass Bed," pours soul into Bobby Timmons' "Moanin'," has no difficulty with the sophisticated ballad "What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life" and romps through "St. Louis Blues" and "Take The 'A' Train." This is an excellent recording.
