All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Two unrelated but rewarding sessions by the great Dixieland cornetist Wild Bill Davison are combined on this delightful CD. The first session -- a six-song ballad-oriented date that also includes trombonist Jimmy Archey, Garvin Bushell on clarinet and on "Yesterdays" bassoon, pianist Ralph Sutton, bassist Sid Weiss, and drummer Morey Feld -- has some particularly ferocious playing from Davison who takes his first recorded vocal on "Ghost of a Chance".

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow

The remaining dozen tunes come from a very successful matchup in 1976 between Davison and the Classic Jazz Collegium Orchestra, a talented ten-member Czechoslovakian group. Some of the numbers most notably a classic rendition of "Sunday" have inventive arrangements that make the band sound like a unit from the 1920s. Wild Bill is quite inspired throughout, making this one of his most rewarding sets of the 1970s. Highly recommended.
