AllMusic Review by

After years of low-profile teaching and playing, guitarist Sal Salvador started to re-emerge on a more national basis in 1978. He is teamed up for this project with five fellow veterans (trombonist Eddie Bert, baritonist Nick Brignola, pianist Derek Smith, bassist Sam Jones and drummer Mel Lewis) for four standards (including "Nica's Dream" and "Don't Get Around Much Anymore") and two of his originals (highlighted by "Blue Gnu's Blues"). An excellent modern bop album.
