A Blue Note essential, The Ultimate is part of the Blue Note 75 anniversary vinyl reissue campaign, featuring 100 titles and key to the initiative is high-quality audio at affordable prices.

This is one of Joe Farrell's finest recordings. Switching between tenor, soprano and flute, Farrell had to be good because he was joined in the pianoless trio by bassist Jimmy Garrison and drummer Elvin Jones. The group performs two standards, three Garrison originals and one by Farrell; it is a toss-up as to who takes honors. Farrell is in consistently creative form but Garrison's occasional solos and Jones's polyrhythmic accompaniment are also noteworthy.
