AllMusic Review by

The second in a series of four LPs that reissue the bulk of pianist Teddy Wilson's Musicraft recordings of the mid-'40s features the great swing pianist in four different settings. Wilson plays in an octet that also includes trumpeter Buck Clayton and tenor saxophonist Don Byas; in a quartet with the extroverted tenor of Charlie Ventura; with a quartet showcasing trumpeter Buck Clayton; and he also heads a trio. In the early stage of her career, Sarah Vaughan is outstanding during her four appearances, particularly on "September Song" and "Don't Worry About Me." Despite the rise of bebop, Teddy Wilson's style remained unchanged, as he shows on such romps as "I Want to Be Happy," "Sheik of Araby," and "Chinatown My Chinatown."
