That’s All

Personnel & Notes:

Recorded at Rudy Van Gelder Studio,
Englewood Cliffs, NJ, April 17, 1961

Not released until 1979, this excellent quintet session features the always formidable team of trumpeter Donald Byrd and baritonist Pepper Adams. The accompanying rhythm section includes pianist Herbie Hancock shortly before he joined Miles Davis. The repertoire consists of six likable tunes including an uptempo “I’m an Old Cowhand,” “That’s All,” “Sophisticated Lady,” two Byrd originals and Duke Pearson’s “Chant.” This is superior hard bop from the early ’60s.
