Liner notes: Orrin Keepnews


"Of trumpeter Blue Mitchell's seven Riverside recordings, only this set -- along with three numbers on Blue Soul -- feature Mitchell as the only horn. Joined by pianist Wynton Kelly, bassist Sam Jones, and drummer Roy Brooks, the trumpeter is typically distinctive, swinging, and inventive within the hard bop genre. He performs four standards, plus Ronnell Bright's "Sweet Pumpkin," the obscure "Avars," and a pair of originals in fine fashion."
