AllMusic Review by

Guitarist Mundell Lowe's "TransitWest," a quartet also including Sam Most on flute and tenor, bassist Monty Budwig and drummer Nick Ceroli, did not last very long, and this LP is quite difficult to find, but the group was an excellent outlet for the guitarist's playing during its brief existence. Four straight-ahead and often lyrical Lowe originals alternate on the set with five veteran standards including "Old Folks," "Nuages" and "Cottontail." Most of the music swings gently, but with inner passion, and the blend between Lowe and Most is quite attractive.
