At the time he recorded this album in 1957, Arnett Cobb was in the process of rebounding from a serious automobile accident that broke both his legs. Cobb's indomitable spirit shines through in these tracks, whether he is calmly preaching on "When My Dream Boat Comes Home," grooving down the "Lonesome Road," or roaring through the song that is almost as closely associated with him as it is with Illinois Jacquet — "Flying Home."

There are plenty of good blues, too, and pianist Ray Bryant's eloquence in this idiom is well exposed. Ray Barretto's conga adds another flavor to the rhythm section, especially on "Cocktails for Two." With Ray Bryant, Wendell Marshall, Arthur Taylor and Ray Barretto.

I wasn't familiar with this LP but as I'm a subscriber to the Prestige series I received it.

The music is very very good - accessible and upbeat but easy going. The sound is glorious - beautiful tone on the sax and immaculate pressing.

Highly recommended.

Party time it is!

Fantastic reproduction. I realize it's been said time and time again, but it's like being in the studio with these musicians. Well done AP!
