"Here's a rule of thumb: If it's on the VSOP label, it's going to be absolutely stellar. This title, by Vic Feldman, is no different. Lays out some of the sweetest vibe sounds you'll ever hear, and if that wasn't enough, check out the roster of cats backing him up:
Frank Rosolino on trombone,
Carl Perkins on piano,
Leroy Vinnegar (walkin') on bass, and
Stan Levey on drums.
It also features Harold Land on tenor. Brother, that's a dam* fine set up. And although it's got a typo on it and lists two track number six's (there are only 7 tracks on it), that's the only fault with this project - it's too short. But, if you're at all into the 50's West Coast sound, you gotta pick this up and add it to your collection right away."

"The two best pianists on the West Coast, in my humble opinion--Carl Perkins and Victor Feldman--except that Victor plays vibes on this date (which is as it should be since, as talented a pianist as Victor was, no one had a more personal, sparkling and rapturous, unique and immediately identifiable sound than Perkins). Unfortunately (or, perhaps, merely ironically), Feldman's versatility may have worked against him, as it caused the limited jazz public to view him as a "miscellaneous musician," with vibes another rabbit in his bag of tricks.
But listening to him closely is to experience a player who eschews the slow vibrators of Milt Jackson while making melodic sense on his own terms. In fact, he may deserve as much credit as Gary Burton for moving the instrument forward after Bags had brought it into the age of bebop."
