For this excellent hard bop date, trombonist Curtis Fuller and the powerful tenor Sal Nistico make for a potent front line. With pianist Walter Bishop Jr., bassist Sam Jones and drummer Freddie Waits keeping the momentum flowing, the quintet performs two Fuller originals, Kenny Dorham's &"Minor's Holiday," and three standards. Although the bop-oriented BeeHive label has since become inactive, one might be able to find this swinging and enjoyable album, one of Curtis Fuller's best sets of the era.

Andy's note:
A top recording from Curtis Fuller , vinyl on BeeHive BH7007
I picked this up for a bargain NZ$10 without previewing it,I like Curtis Fuller's sound,the addition of Walter Bishop Jr and Sam Jones made it an easy choice.I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
