This unprecedented release features twenty-six tracks of the powerful groove-oriented tenor saxophonist playing a rare straight-ahead set accompanied by such outstandings figures as Gerald Wiggins on the piano chair, Howard Roberts or John Collins on guitar, Red Callender on bass and Alvin Stoller or Shelly Manne on drums. The various formations swing with precision, providing Rusty with the perfect backdrop to demonstrate his ample saxophone skills and impecable taste.
The repertoire contains a lot of Standards as well as seven own compositions. As a Bonus Tracks appeared two tracks of his first LP recorded in NYC, 1954.
"An excellent release from the groove-oriented tenor player's early career as a band leader."
-Tim Berg, Jazz FM
