Today Tommy Flanagan is one of the most highly valued pianists in jazz. Back in the Fifties his appearances on record were primarily as a sideman, well-appreciated by his fellow musicians and the cognoscenti but not recognized for their display of his superior abilities by a wider audience.

The fact that this album contained a Flanagan trio track, "How Long Has This Been Going On?," was greeted with glee by the inner circle.

Then, too, since Coltrane, Burrell, and Idrees Sulieman were such choice, empathic soloists, it was a delight to hear them interact with Tommy and the all-Detroit rhythm section of Doug Watkins and Louis Hayes. All the originals are from the pen of Flanagan.

Some frown upon OJC reissues in general, and while I personally agree that they are a hit-or-miss, some of them are a tremendous bargain and sound great. This is one of them! One great bop session and sound quality is very good. Recommended!

Great band

Kenny Burrell sounds great on this, similar to the Coltrane and Burrell album of just thir names. Tommy Flanagan and others also swing. Good bop and good sound. The grooves are not pressed deeply, though, and I had a couple of mistracks untill I adjusted my tonearm a little. When the nice vinyl is all over priced, it is good to get a bargain for $10.
