Turner, who appeared on stage with Goodman, Ellington, Tatum and - in later years - with Gillespie and Eldridge, offers his listeners many facets of the blues. The opening number, "Switchin' In The Kitchen", is a fairly fast boogie-woogie where the vocal swings freely with sharp blasts in the background. Other swinging numbers, in which jazz champions such as Coleman Hawkins and Ernie Royal perform solos, include several ballad-like evergreens ("Pennies From Heaven"), which Turner and his band elaborate to become an imposing aria ("Until The Real Thing Comes Along").
