Reference: VJ 002 CD

In 1957, drummer Walter Perkins formed a quintet, the MJT+3, that recorded four albums before breaking up in 1962. This CD reissue has the second record, and the first with the group's most famous line-up of trumpeter Willie Thomas, altoist Frank Strozier, pianist Harold Mabern, bassist Bob Cranshaw, and the leader on drums [...]
Mabern and Strozier contributed originals. The band's style is not all that unusual, essentially hard bop, but it was well played and the group had its own sound. A fine example of MJT+3's work.
