This was the debut album of Paul Horn as bandleader and, appearing shortly after Miles Davis’s seminal Kind of Blue, it served as one of the earliest and most persuasive statements of the modal jazz approach. The elimination of thick chordal movement in favor of scales, the frequent use of triple meter, and the fresh ensemble blend of vibes, piano, and Horn’s horns (flute, clarinet, and alto sax) create a singularly fresh and attractive sound. Among the talented sideman is a very young but already masterful Billy Higgins.

with Paul Moer, Jimmy Bond, Billy Higgins, Emil Richards
