The title of (the first track ‘Royal Rendezvous’) is an apt description of the recording-a royal rendezvous of talent and music. The band’s sound is tight and a thrill to hear. Charles Hanna-Jazz Critic, Minneapolis

A conspicuously high-powered ensemble molded in the image of the celebrated Stan Kenton Orchestra. Section work is crisp and unerring, soloists alert and resourceful. — All About Jazz
