During 1959-1960, the tough-toned but sentimental tenor saxophonist Arnett Cobb recorded six albums for Prestige; his next recording as a leader would not be until 1971. On this particular CD reissue, Cobb performs quintet selections with pianist Tommy Flanagan, bassist Sam Jones, drummer Art Taylor, and Danny Barrajanos on conga; on "Down by the Riverside" (from February 17) pianist Bobby Timmons and Buck Clarke on congas join Jones, Taylor, and Cobb. The saxman's treatments of "Blue Me" and five veteran songs ("Lover Come Back to Me," "Blue Lou," "Swanee River," "Down by the Riverside," and "Sometimes I'm Happy") are melodic, soulful, and swinging. An excellent if brief (at 36 minutes) effort.
