Bobby Timmons, in his dual role as pianist and composer of compellingly funky material, had been a great good-luck charm for such leaders as Art Blakey ("Moanin'") and Cannonball Adderley ("This Here"). Eventually, he struck out on his own, making several soulful albums for Riverside and later for Prestige, although never achieving major success. The first trio he assembled included two of the most in-demand young players on the early Sixties New York jazz scene: bassist Ron Carter and drummer Albert "Tootie" Heath. This on-the-job recording at the Village Vanguard comes closest to demonstrating Timmons's strength as both writer and player.
