This 1957 recording was the second of Mal Waldron's four Mal-titled albums (MAL/1, MAL/2, MAL/3, MAL/4). Divided between standards and originals, Mal leads a sextet throughout, with featured soloists John Coltrane and Jackie McLean.
The set as a whole adheres closer to the prevailing post-bop style of the day. Waldron's elegantly minimalist approach is most audible in his solos, and occasionally in his writing. The closing "One By One" is distinctly Waldron, with its angularly fractured march-like cadence and moody bearing. For the most part though, his writing had yet to embrace the innovative characteristics that would emerge on his 1961 album THE QUEST.
