The improv is first rate: how can you beat Joe Henderson and Woody Shaw? They're a tandem in the same league as Hubbard/Shorter or Miles/Shorter or even, for my money, Miles/Coltrane.
And speaking of leagues, Horace's team on this disk is on par with Blakey's Jazz Messengers. Roger Humphries is as crisp and nimble on the traps as Blakey is dramatic and emotional. So, you get a really nice contrast there.
The songs are great. Overall equal to Song for My Father even if there is no single "hit" as big as SFMF was.
I also like the engineering on this collection better then SFMF. Not sure way, but it seems cleaner/more presence(?). For me, this collection just sounds more modern than the usual Bluenote collection of this era.
Anyway, this is a must buy for all Shaw, Henderson, Silver fans and anyone else who loves a jazz quintet or sextet.
this is very highly recommended along with, of course, "Song For My Father" and the great "The Jody Grind"...
another classic 60's Blue Note recording from Horace Silver!! try it, you'll like it :)
