Downbeat original review: The Swinging Mr. Rogers
“This album turns out to be a joy to hear. Shorty plays much more distinctive trumpet when he’s with a small group, for some reason, and Giuffre is a gas on clarinet (note particularly “Martians Go Home”, which also is recommended as the title of the year). For the group spirit, for Shorty’s strong horn, for Giuffre’s great reed work, for Shelly’s swing –all the stars. (John Tynan)

All Music Guide

“This LP has one of trumpeter Shorty Rogers' finest small group sessions of the 1950's. Rogers, Jimmy Giuffre (on clarinet, tenor and baritone), pianist Pete Jolly, bassist Curtis Counce and drummer Shelly Manne are the epitome of cool on a well-rounded and consistently interesting set. Highlights including ‘Isn't It Romantic,’ ‘Trickleydidlier,’ ‘Not Really the Blues’ and Rogers' hit ‘Martians Go Home’.” (Scott Yanow)
