Pianist Bobby Timmons did the bulk of his recording as a leader for Riverside in a trio setting. This album was the exception, as it adds the pungent lyricism of Blue Mitchell's trumpet to the deeply soulful rhythm section of Timmons, Sam Jones, and Art Blakey. Timmons had recently left Cannonball Adderley's quintet to return to Blakey's Jazz Messengers, and was clearly at a peak as both player and composer. The album features four of his characteristically sanctified tunes, including the classic "So Tired," which he also cut with Blakey for Blue Note in the midst of the sessions that produced this album.

with Blue Mitchell, Sam Jones, Art Blakey
