A sample of friendly jazzy affinity between real Swing players with the virtues that should have to jam. These rare transatlantic dates issued by HRS & Vogue performs Basie-ite trumpeter Clayton (for whom Stanley Dance coined the term "Mainstream") with solid feelings of Tiny Grimes, Dicky Wells-Trummy Young, Don Byas, George Johnson and young pianist Billy Taylor, or French cats like Alix Combelle & André Persiany in four sessions that can be considered among the final small-group swing events of the classic era.
