Nothing else like it
John Lee | Mattoon IL United States | 07/23/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Just three guys swingin' like the Count Basie Orchestra on too much coffee. No jazz snobbery here --- these guys are out to entertain [who knew that Illinois could do a dead-on impression of Ella Fitzgerald?].

Milt's organ playing is unique, and perhaps a little over-the-top. Jacquet has also been criticized for overdoing it, with honks and squeals [and it this case, scat solos]...but this is honest, enthusiastic, unpretentious music, and who can blame them for getting excited when they're swinging so hard?"
