During a two-day period in 1978, Muse Records fully documented a jam session featuring the tenors of Arnett Cobb and Buddy Tate, altoist Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson, pianist Ray Bryant, bassist George Duvivier and drummer Alan Dawson. Six records resulted, two apiece headed by the three saxophonists. On this first LP, (which except for "Broadway" has been reissued on CD), Cobb has four features with the trio (highlighted by "Just Aa Closer Walk with Thee" and "September Song") before welcoming his fellow saxophonists to participate in a rousing version of "Broadway." All of the sets in this rewarding series are recommended to straightahead and mainstream jazz fans.
