"Bass man Leroy Vinnegar's Jazz's Great Walker captures some of Vinnegar's most cherished tracks. It's a solid mix of cool jazz and light tinges of swing. "You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To" shimmies with a crisp bass cut over piano grooves and xylophone drops, whereas "The Love Nest" swaggers with Vinnegar's signature heart-thumping musicianship. It's probably the slyest track on the album, taking on a life of its own. "Bee Sees" follows close behind, bursting with jazz flares and trumpeting excitement. Vinnegar and his troupe are a sharp bunch. Jazz's Great Walker reflects Vinnegar's warm personality inside some of his most personal work. It's an enjoyable listen."
