"It would be too easy to characterize this session by pigeonholing its musical nature simply as "hard bop". As anyone knows who has made a close study of the work of these men, they are equipped with far more subtlety and originality than is implied by that overworked, obsolescence-bound phrase. It was a date at wich everyone dug everyone else, with just enough written music to guide and never enough to hamper the participants. In short, a swinging session."
