Bobby Timmons recorded this, his third album, a year into his second stay with Art Blakey. In a few months he would form a trio like the one heard here; and while bassist Sam Jones (who had worked with Timmons in Cannonball Adderley's quintet) and Miles Davis drummer Jimmy Cobb did not leave their secure gigs to join the pianist, their ability to fuse with Timmons into an inspired unit was as sure here as on his debut This Here Is Bobby Timmons (OJCCD-104-2). Three of the eight tunes are memorable originals (coincidentally, the Jazz Messengers recorded "A Little Busy" the following day) and two others remind us that, in addition to soul, Timmons had a deeply lyrical feel for ballad playing.
