AllMusic Review by

Pianist Neville Dickie's second solo set for Stomp Off has another strong program of standards and obscurities, all challenging workouts for Dickie's stride style. Among the highlights are his interpretations of "Carolina Shout," "Kansas City Stomp," Willie "The Lion" Smith's "Finger Buster," an adventurous reworking of "Maple Leaf Rag," "I'm Just Wild About Harry" and "Charleston." All classic jazz fans should be aware of Neville Dickie's playing and are advised to get his highly enjoyable Stomp Off releases.
