Considering how late this was recorded in Nat Adderley's career, the cornetist sounds in surprisingly fine form throughout the sessions. There are individual features for altoist Antonio Hart (who ranges from Tranish on "Rwanda" to playing in a more Cannonball Adderley-oriented style on the older tunes) and the McCoy Tyner-inspired pianist Rob Bargad, so Adderley (who is showcased on "You Don't Know What Love Is") has opportunities to rest his chops. Among the other highlights are "Sermonette," "My Romance," and "Unit Seven." ~ Scott Yanow
