Product Description:

Personnel: James Moody (flute, tenor saxophone); Jimmy Owens, Joe Newman (trumpet, flugelhorn); Snooky Young (trumpet); Jimmy Cleveland (trombone); Don Butterfield (tuba); Kenny Barron (piano); Bob Cranshaw (double bass).
For this Milestone LP (not yet reissued on CD), James Moody leaves his alto at home and mostly sticks to tenor (although he switches to flute on "Cherokee"). Five of the nine selections feature Moody with a five-piece brass section (three trumpets, one trombone and a tuba) and a top-notch rhythm section consisting of pianist Kenny Barron, bassist Bob Cranshaw and drummer Mel Lewis. Tom McIntosh's arrangements are functional but unexciting, with only "Au Privave" catching much fire. Best are the four other numbers which showcase the tenorman with only the rhythm section. Not content to be a mere bebop revivalist, Moody is heard throughout pushing himself, and there are some good moments from Barron too. ~ Scott Yanow
