Jazz was going in several distinctive and exciting directions in 1961. One popular route was led by pianist/composer Horace Silver--cordially up-tempo, funky hard bop that brought to the forefront the blues and gospel roots of jazz, often referred to as soul-jazz. The chemistry of Silver's tasty piano and infectious tunes, Blue Mitchell's crackling trumpet, and Junior Cook's hearty tenor saxophone make this cooker of a live session one to cherish.
