"Jimmy Yancey never received the kind of popular recognition that players like Pete Johnson and Meade Lux Lewis were to achieve, but those later masters were never hesitant to acknowledge their debt to the great Yancey. Unfortunately, the quietly powerful intensity of Yancey's best playing was not always fully evident in his later work, and some of the selections on this collection do not represent Yancey at his very best. If you can only afford one Yancey album, go with Volume 1. But any Yancey is better than none at all, and this is album is certainly worthy of inclusion in the collection of anyone who loves the rollicking sound of boogie-woogie piano."
