"Trombonist Bennie Green and tenor saxophonist Jimmy Forrest make a potent team on this fine middle-of-the-road 1960 set. Performing three selections by their pianist Sonny Clark, an obscurity, "Solitude," and "Sometimes I'm Happy," Green and Forrest both display extroverted emotions and plenty of swinging ideas. Also heard from are bassist George Tucker, drummer Al Dreares and Joseph Gorgas on bongos."
