Album Review

Art Farmer (on his flumpet, a compromise between a trumpet and a flugelhorn) swings in creative fashion on a live set with veteran tenor Harold Land, pianist Bill Bell, bassist Rufus Reid and drummer Albert "Tootie" Heath.

There are spots where Farmer (67 at the time) and Land show their age a little, but their enthusiasm, decades of success at developing their own sounds, and constant creativity within the hard bop tradition result in many strong moments.
