AllMusic Review by

Although it does not state it anywhere on this 1980 LP, none of these eight performances (each from a different pianist) were originally released as part of any other Xanadu album. Barry Harris and Duke Jordan are heard in trios, and there are unaccompanied solos by Kenny Drew, Dolo Coker, Jimmy Rowles, Cedar Walton, Lou Levy, and Mickey Tucker, giving listeners a healthy slice of bebop piano from the mid-'70s. This music has not yet been reissued on CD.
