AllMusic Review by

This obscure LP features bassist Red Callender in one of his very infrequent occasions as a leader, heading an octet featuring a variety of talented Los Angeles players (including trumpeter Parr Jones, Buddy Collette on tenor and flute, altoist Bill Green and pianist Eddie Beal) on a dozen of his melodic originals. The music swings lightly, has attractive chord changes suitable for jamming, and fits into the cool-toned West Coast jazz genre.
