Brian Lemon's jaunty piano is the perfect foil for Freeman in "Just Past Tea Time," while bassist Len Skeat is the leader's duo partner in an imaginatively constructed take of "Don't Blame Me." This English CD is easily one of the best recordings by Bud Freeman during the final decade of his long career.
