AllMusic Review by

This is first-rate music, but is really vintage instrumental R&B with swing foundation. Johnson was a tremendous, energetic pianist who had some hit records with his sister, vocalist Ella Johnson, and also had some sessions produced by Quincy Jones. He is a different player from the veteran jazz saxophonist Budd Johnson.
