Album Review

This out-of-print album is very much a showcase for saxophonist Pat LaBarbera, who doubles on tenor and soprano, for he also contributed five of the eight selections. With drummer Elvin Jones, pianist Kenny Kirkland and bassist Reggie Workman forming a formidable rhythm section, LaBarbera is heard throughout in fine form, playing in a style strongly influenced by (but not derivative of) John Coltrane. Unfortunately, this high-quality hard bop set will be difficult to find.

Customer Reviews

Small release from a big hitting team

For me, being an old drummer, I never get tired of hearing it. I purchased the album way back in HS and it was my fist exposure to Jazz drumming. I played the heck out of the thing and searched forever to find it on CD- to no avail. I had to burn it to disc- Thanks ITUNES. The quality is great and although the review it correct about the sax- everybody else still had kick it up a notch to keep pace with a jazz drummin' master. Jones dances on the drums without stealing the limelight from anybody on the team. A great example of early eighties jazz!

After spending time in the Army (1946-1949), he was a part of the very fertile Detroit jazz scene...
