AllMusic Review by

The second and final Soprano Summit record for World Jazz features Kenny Davern and Bob Wilber doubling on clarinets and sopranos, pianist Dick Hyman, guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli, bassist Milt Hinton and either Tommy Benford or Bobby Rosengarden on drums. This hard-to-find LP is mostly pretty ragtime-oriented (with two pieces from Scott Joplin and works by George Gershwin, Jelly Roll Morton and Willie "The Lion" Smith plus three by Wilber) but it also has its exciting and spontaneous moments. All of the Soprano Summit recordings are well worth acquiring.
