Original Down Beat review:
“A superbly relaxed and tasteful set of conversations by Lionel, Art, and Buddy. Hampton plays here some of his best, most consistently inventive vibes in years. Tatum is exhilarating, and seems freer in this trio context than he usually is when not by himself. Rich is flawless. This is the kind of trialog that is not likely ever to lose its glow. As for swinging, this, gentlemen, is time.” (Nat Hentoff)
