AllMusic Review by

This Music Masters CD, released in 1991, contains altoist Vincent Herring's earliest recordings (some of which predate his association with Nat Adderley). Actually his Cannonball Adderley-inspired style was already recognizable. Herring is the dominant soloist throughout with pianists John Hicks and Bruce Barth making significant contributions. The material has a nice balance between fiery pieces and laidback ballads and most of the solos tend to be concise, melodic and swinging.
