When this album was made, Wes Montgomery was in the early rocket-like stages of a tragically brief career. His debut as a recording artist on Riverside had not come until he was in his mid-thirties (and he was to die of a heart attack within a decade). In the single year between his first and this–his third–LP, he had leaped to the top of all possible polls. But he was always highly critical of his own recorded performances, and many feel his studio work never quite equaled his on-the-job accomplishments. However, this relaxed "blowing date" (his principal backing comes from a trio then working together as his friend Cannonball Adderley's rhythm section) is considered perhaps his most successfully swinging visit to a recording studio.

with James Clay, Victor Feldman, Sam Jones, Louis Hayes
