AllMusic Review by

This English LP features the Harry James Orchestra during an era when it was often overshadowed by the modernists. Ironically James' big band was rarely as advanced than during this period, when it was somewhat influenced by bebop. Other than two vocals, the performances put the emphasis on James's trumpet, the skills of his sidemen (including altoist Willie Smith and tenor saxophonist Corky Corcoran) and the full ensemble.
