A hard-hitting blowing session, cut very much in the mode of Gene
's late 50s sides for Prestige – and with a very accomplished group of soul jazzers that includes Nat Adderley
, Frank Foster
, Bennie Green, and Frank
Wess. The groove has a nice raw late night sound – and tracks are pretty long and open-ended. Titles include "Litty Ditty", "Sermonette", "Juggin Around", and "Jim Dog".
