This 1960 recording is such a major success that it is surprising that altoist Phil Woods has rarely recorded in this context. The all-star octet not only features the altoist/leader but trumpeter Benny Bailey, trombonist Curtis Fuller, baritone saxophonist Sahib Shihab, French horn player Julius Watkins (a major factor in this music), pianist Tommy Flanagan, bassist Buddy Catlett, and drummer Osie Johnson. This set consists entirely of Woods' five-part Rights of Swing suite, which clocks in at around 38 minutes. The colorful arrangements use the distinctive horns in inventive fashion and the music leaves room for many concise solos.

Another nice feature of the CD is the fold-out reproduction of the original liner notes - a wealth of information, actually large enough to read!
