Capitol, 1964. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the hardest-hitting Junior Mance albums of the 60s – a session that features the Mance piano grooving soulfully over some bigger backings handled by Bob Bain – really swinging nicely, in a way that's got a real Oliver Nelson feel overall!

One of the best early albums by vocalist Mark Murphy – cut to arrangements by Bill Holman on side one, a set of big band numbers, and to smaller piano trio backing on side two, which features mellower stuff.
