A great assemblage of legendary players from the Memphis scene, both old and young – brought together in one great chorus of soulful jazz! The feel of the set recalls the 1959 Young Men From Memphis album for United Artists
– a record that featured a good number of the players on this set, many of whom are still sounding great, more than 20 years later! The style of this one is a bit more modern than that classic set – with less of the bluesy touches you might associate with Memphis, and more of the flowing, free soul jazz style that many of the players had developed in their years away from the city. The lineup includes Bill Mobley on trumpet, Bill Easley on saxes, George Coleman on tenor, Donald Brown on piano, James Williams on organ and piano, Calvin Newborn on guitar, Mulgrew Miller on piano, Jamil Nasser on bass, and Harold Mabern on piano too! The piano talents on the set are enough to make the set great – but the warmth and good spirits of the lineup are evident throughout, on tracks that include "No Moon At All", "Squindo's Passion", "Ray-el", "There But For The Grace Of", "The Sequel", and "Night Mist Blues".
