AllMusic Review by

Tenor saxophonist Ben Webster, who had moved permanently to Europe in 1965, meets up with the veteran trumpeter Bill Coleman (a resident of Europe since the late '40s) for this upbeat swing session. In addition to three collaborations, they perform four standards, with Coleman having a feature on "But Not for Me" and taking a pair of vocals. The music is quite enjoyable and swinging, a good outing for all concerned.
