All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Marty Grosz recordings are always fun. Grosz, a top humorist though his monologues have yet to be fully included on recordings, is a cheerful vocalist whose style is influenced by Fats Waller, and a superior acoustic chordal guitarist. His combos are superb examples of small group swing with an emphasis on songs from the 1920s and '30s.

Frank Roberscheuten shows his versatility by playing clarinet his best ax, tenor, and alto while bassist Nico Gastreich and drummer Moritz Gastreich are swinging and subtle in support.

Reinhart and Grosz are the solo stars and this set is easily recommended to fans of vintage swing and classic jazz.
