From Fischman
I'm not generally an alto fan, but this album made me a believer. Adderley was the master of the alto and this is his finest work. The ensemble are tight and lay down jazz that is hot, cool and swinging. Two big thumbs up.

I tend to put my jazz collection down for months at a time and when I do, I return to Miles or Mingus. But every time this one makes its way into my ears I remember why it's my favorite jazz album. Every track is perfect.
