All of guitarist-singer Marty Grosz's recordings are easily recommended to fans of small group swing and hot jazz. On this set Grosz is often heard in a smaller unit than usual. While five songs utilize a quintet with cornetist Randy Reinhart, the reeds of Scott Robinson, guitarist Mike Peters, and bassist Greg Cohen, and five other numbers have the same group except without Reinhart and with Dan Block adding his reeds, there are also three duets by Grosz and Reinhart, and three duets for the guitarists. No matter what the setting, Grosz is in a typically droll and witty mood, reviving obscurities (including two Fats Waller songs), contributing two originals, taking cheerful vocals, and contributing chordal guitar solos. Fun music. ~ Scott Yanow
