For this obscure session, the great clarinetist Buddy DeFranco is accompanied by the swing band of Al Raymond. DeFranco is the main star on six of the eight selections, but there is also solo space for trombonist Al Grey and pianist Pete Jackson, among others. The repertoire includes some swing tunes and originals by DeFranco and Denis DiBlasio; the latter along with George Rabbai contributes a scat vocal to "Buy It and Fry It." The music is pleasing and swinging, if somewhat predictable. ~ Scott Yanow
