Unlike so many of Prestige's great artists, Bobby Timmons was already a star when he signed with the label. He did find new opportunities, however, as he set aside his common piano trio format and spearheaded the two superior quartet sessions contained on this CD. With vibraphonist Johnny Lytle, Timmons created his patented soul-blues groove, as well as a couple of tender ballad readings; in the presence of Wayne Shorter and Ron Carter from the then-current Miles Davis quintet, plus Davis alum Jimmy Cobb, he digs into an imaginative set of jazz originals, including first-ever recordings of classics by Shorter and Carter (who did enter the ranks as a leader on Prestige--see OJCCD-432-2) plus a pair of typically incisive Timmons originals.

with Wayne Shorter, Johnny Lytle, Keter Betts, Ron Carter, William "Peppy" Hinnant, Jimmy Cobb
