Willis is anything but loose on this set — as the band and him are grooving in some wonderfully uptight soul jazz lines! The format’s a bit more gutbuckety than some of his later work, with Carl Wilson playing chunky Hammond grooves, Frank Robinson punching it up on trumpet, and Bill Jones twanging away on guitar. Includes a very lively reading of “After Hours”, plus the tracks “Y’all”, “What Will I Tell My Heart”, and “Secret Love”.
