All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Slim Gaillard was at the peak of his fame from the mid-to-late '40s. After 1953 he only recorded two full-length albums, one for Dot in 1958 and this CD reissue which was cut in London in 1982. As Gaillard shows on the opening "How High the Moon," he had not lost anything in the vocal or humor department; in fact the weirdly picturesque opener is the highpoint of the date.

Not everything works on this date, particularly "Slim's Jam No. 2" which lacks the crazy briliance and spontaneity of the original "Slim's Jam," or the travelogue "Everything's O.K. in the U.K." However there are some good Buddy Tate solos including a spot on clarinet on "Honeysuckle Rose" and plenty of high spirits throughout the date. Slim Gaillard should have been recorded much more extensively during his last three decades but one is grateful for this souvenir from late in his career.
