Trombonist Bill Watrous' second and final big-band album for Columbia is the equal of his first. With such soloists as Watrous, trumpeter Danny Stiles, and either Tom Garvin or Derek Smith on keyboards, this well-rounded set (which includes ballads, Latin pieces, the rockish "T.S. T.S.," and some heated workouts) was finally reissued on CD in July 2007, along with the earlier Manhattan Wildlife Refuge.
