As with the slightly earlier Mostly Blues CD, the title of this set is inaccurate. True, Hampton performs such ballads as "I'll Be Seeing You," "Lover Man" and "But Beautiful," but many of these songs are taken at medium tempos and this program also includes three Teo Macero originals that are definitely not ballads.

It's an erratic but worthy release from the vital octogenarian.
