"One of the first true moments of genius from saxophonist Nathan Davis — a mid 60s European session cut for the tiny SFP label — and a record that's even rarer than his early classics for MPS! The sound here is similar to the MPS sides — a mixture of soul jazz and modal jazz — served up with a bit more freedoms than Davis might have gotten on the US scene, and featuring a lineup that includes Woody Shaw on trumpet, Jean-Louis Chautemps on baritone sax, Rene Urtreger on piano, Jimmy Woode on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums. The tight rhythm of Woode and Clarke is a nice counterpoint to the modernism of Davis and Shaw — Davis works a bit on soprano, which sounds especially great!" — Dusty Groove

The SAM label definitely is onto something. Every copy I've bought has been great music and so well recorded and pressed. This record is no exception. Tight playing of great arrangements. Dead quiet. Dynamic. Emotional.
