AllMusic Review by 

The album gets its name because for this session, Stitt plugged his alto and tenor saxophones into a Varitone attachment. What came out, though, was not fusion by any means, but a pretty straight-ahead session that found Sonny his usual competent self. The program is actually on the conservative side, leaning toward standards like Hammerstein-Kern's "All the Things You Are," and Mercer-Jenkins' "P.S. I Love You," "Bye Bye Blackbird," "Over the Rainbow,"and "Stella by Starlight." Stitt's quartet is rounded out by Don Patterson on organ, Billy Butler on guitar, and Billy James on drums. The album has been reissued on CD, paired with a Don Patterson session from the following day (Funk You) on which Stittalso played alto and tenor sax, on the single-disc compilation Legends of Acid Jazz: Sonny Stitt/Don Patterson, Vol. 2.
