The previously unreleased material included on this 1994 CD features the great baritonist Serge Chaloff performing on radio broadcasts from Boston. Most intriguing are four concise duets from 1946 (before Chaloff became famous) with pianist Rollins Griffith. Otherwise, Chaloff is heard in 1950 with quartets and quintets which often include pianist Nat Pierce, and sometimes trombonists Sonny Truitt or Milt Gold. The recording quality is decent for the period, and Chaloff (who at one point is briefly interviewed by a disc jockey) is in excellent form on the boppish material. Highlights include "The Goof and I," "Four Brothers," "Body and Soul," two versions of "Pennies From Heaven," and "Keen and Peachy." ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide
