Thick-toned tenor Ike Quebec is in excellent form on this reissue of a 1961 Blue Note date. His ballad statements are quite warm, and he swings nicely on a variety of medium-tempo material. Unfortunately, organist Freddie Roach has a rather dated sound, which weakens this session a bit; bassist Milt Hinton and drummer Al Harewood are typically fine in support. Originals alternate with standards, with “Just One More Chance,” “The Man I Love,” and “Nature Boy” (the latter an emotional tenor-bass duet) being among the highlights.
