AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

Considering his obvious talents, it is surprising that trombonist Bill Watrous has recorded relatively little through the years. This CD is one of his better efforts, a quartet outing with pianist Shelly Berg, bassist Lou Fischer, and either Randy Drake or Tom Cummings on drums.

Although Watrous overdubbed some extra trombones on a few tracks and Berg added some synthesized strings, the emphasis is on straight-ahead swinging by the basic quartet, with the highlights including “Day in, Day Out,” “Change Partners,” and “A Hot One for Jason.”
