Bassist Sam Jones' debut as a leader resulted in one of his finest recordings. On four of the eight selections on the reissue of his Riverside set, Jones is well featured on bass while the other four numbers find him playing very effective cello. The uncredited arrangements for the groups are uniformly excellent and there is solo space for cornetist Nat Adderley, trumpeter Blue Mitchell, Jimmy Heath on tenor, baritonist Charles Davis, and pianist Bobby Timmons. The repertoire is superior, too, with highlights including the debut of Adderley's "The Old Country," a fine jam on "Just Friends," Keter Betts' "Some Kinda Mean," Jones' bowing on "Home," and Bobby Timmons' "So Tired." Actually all eight selections are memorable on this highly recommended disc.

Samuel Jones (12 November 1924–15 December 1981) was a jazz bassist, cellist, and composer.
Jones played with Bobby Timmons, Tiny Bradshaw, Les Jazz Modes, Kenny Dorham, Illinois Jacquet, Freddie Hubbard, Dizzy Gillespie (1958-59) and Thelonious Monk. He is likely best known for his work with Cannonball Adderley (1959-65), but also spent several years working with Oscar Peterson and Cedar Walton and recorded with Bill Evans in the 1950s. His career primarily revolved around the New York City jazz scene.[1] Jones wrote the jazz standard "Del Sasser", among other tunes.
