One of the few female pianists in 50s jazz – the great Terry Pollard, a player who's usually associated with the Detroit scene, but who works here in a hip west coast setting for Bethlehem Records! The date's got Terry's strong piano in a quintet – with Don Fagerquist on trumpet and Howard Roberts on guitar – both musicians who bring a strong sense of presence to the group passages on the date, but who are also more than willing to step aside and let Pollard really flourish on her solos during some of the album's trio tracks. Terry's sometimes got this bite that's a bit unusual for Bethlehem – a nice nod to her Detroit roots – and the group also features Herman Wright on bass and Frank DeVito on drums. Titles include "Laura", "Fedj", "Emaline", "Almost Like Being In Love", and "Where Or When". LP, Vinyl record album
