"Maybe not absolutely essential, but very enjoyable music from two of the best. Their saxophones blend together so beautifully. A bit on the short side (34 minutes) but wonderfully re-mastered. Every track is a joy. Nothing as inspirational as Mulligan-Webster's "Chelsea Bridge" but a CD you will go back to over and over again. Highly recommended."

"I was pleased when I first found this CD and had not been aware that it had been released in CD format. Since I am both a big Johnny Hodges and Gerry Mulligan fan, I thought I was going to hear great music.Once I listened to it several times I was greatly disappointed as none of the tunes really impressed me and the potential of their meeting did not create the fire one would have expected."

"How can you not love this CD? Hodges always seems to bring out the best in the other players. Or... or does Mulligan do it.... The Ben Webster/GM cd is amazing also. In any case this is a great performance and has excellent sound. (recorded shortly after Putnam opened United). Mulligan (bari) Hodges (alto) Claude Williamson (p) Buddy Clark (b) Mel Lewis (d)
