This is one of the most exceptional products of the blowing session format Prestige favored in the Fifties. Thad Jones and Frank Wess, with more room than was their nightly lot in Count Basie's band, are at their best, as is Kenny Burrell (as soloist and rhythm section player); and Mal Waldron, the backbone of Prestige's session era, provides a perfect setting with four originals and his own playing and organizing skills. One of the definitive afternoons in Rudy Van Gelder's old studio.
with Mal Waldron, Paul Chambers, Arthur Taylor
