AllMusic Review by

Also put out on the French Black & Blue label, this is one of the more obscure LPs to team together tenor saxophonist Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis and trumpeter Harry "Sweets" Edison. Lockjaw and Sweets always made for an exciting combination, constantly challenging each other to play with fire. Highlights of this particular encounter include "Jim Dawg," "Intermission Riff" and "Light and Lovely"; the two distinctive horn stylists are even able to uplift "The Good Life."
