Press reviews

"The second of tenor-saxophonist Wayne Shorter's three Vee Jay LP's this album has five of Shorter's quirky originals plus the obscure "Ruby & The Pearl" (from a 1950's movie) and a pair of standards. Joined by a particularly strong rhythm section (pianist Cedar Walton, bassist Bob Cranshaw and drummer Art Blakey), Shorter sounds quite distinctive on the advanced hard bop material."

—Scott Yanow (All Music Guide)
