Entertainment Reviews:

Q - 8/94, p.123
4 Stars - Excellent - "...the music proclaims its label and era, with tight ensemble work, brassy polish and gutsy emotional mood..."
Down Beat - p.73
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "The playing throughout is decidedly crisp, and the five-horn octet happily light-footed. It all wears very well."

Duke Pearson rises to the challenge of writing for an all-star octet (with trumpeter Freddie Hubbard, trombonist Garnett Brown, altoist James Spaulding, Jerry Dodgion on alto and flute, Stanley Turrentine on tenor, bassist Gene Taylor, drummer Grady Tate, and the leader/pianist), contributing colorful frameworks and consistently challenging compositions. The set is full of diverse melodies (the CD reissue has a previously unissued take of "Los Malos Hombres") played by a variety of distinctive soloists; many of these songs deserve to be revived. This is one of the finest recordings of Duke Pearson's career. ~ Scott Yanow
