This rather brief LP (just 31 minutes) finds tenorman Illinois Jacquet in typically fine form, but fronting a rather anonymous-sounding group (despite the presence of guitarist Kenny Burrell on some numbers) that includes organist Ralph Smith and a Latin percussionist. Most interesting is "Bassoon Blues" which has Jacquet's recorded debut on that instrument. Although "Wild Man" and "Turnpike" are heated, this is only an average outing overall. ~ Scott Yanow
