15 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Robert McFadden on January 19, 2000
Format: Audio CD
This is one of the many great and somewhat overlooked albums of the golden era that reached into the 60s--and arguably should be ranked among classics such as Miles' "Kind of Blue" and Oliver Nelson's "Blues and the Abstract Truth." The cast is an A-team (with the Leader are Lee Morgan, Curtis Fuller, Bobby Hutcherson, Cedar Walton, Ron Carter and Joe Chambers!) and the recording is sterling. Take a listen to the title track by Cedar Walton. It explains why music, and especially straight-ahead jazz, can be a gift! If you like tenor players as leaders, this music is for you.

This is as chewy as it gets. Joe Henderson does a lot of honking and squeaking here, but he smooths it out on most of his solos and Bobby Hutcherson chimes in nicely all over the place. If you're new to hard bop or Joe Henderson, start here.
