AllMusic Review by

This overly brief LP (which has under 30 minutes of music) consists of swinging versions of eight Cole Porter songs as played by an all-star group of top studio musicians: trumpeter Charlie Shavers, tenor saxophonist Sam "The Man" Taylor, trombonist Urbie Green, clarinetist Sol Yaged, pianist Buddy Weed, guitarist Barry Galbraith, bassist Bob Haggart and drummer Cozy Cole. Larry Clinton's arrangements for the concise renditions of such songs as "Just One Of Those Things," "Night And Day" and "What Is This Thing Called Love" leave plenty of room for short solos. Shavers emerges as the main star.
