All of Jackie McLean's early-'60s Blue Note sessions are worth one's time, but this date features a particularly sparkling ensemble including the under-recorded trumpeter Tommy Turrentine and the rhythm team of Sonny Clark, Butch Warren and Billy Higgins. Add a set of finely crafted original compositions and it's hard to imagine why this disc waited till 2000 to make it to CD.
McLean's trademark alto wail is in classic form here, and Turrentine proves as virile a partner as Donald Byrd had on many other exemplary dates with the saxophonist. Sonny Clark, who provides the swinging compositions "Five Will Get You Ten" and "Sundu," is, likewise, at the top of his game here. Warren, an excellent bassist in the tradition of the great Oscar Pettiford, provides ample rhythmic variety and penned the rollicking closer "Lost." Higgins, a Blue Note regular by this time, is at his swinging best, supporting the whole group with his shimmering cymbals.
