Vibraphonist Milt Jackson recorded quite extensively during his decade with Norman Granz's Pablo label. This particular release (which has been reissued on CD) is most notable for helping launch the comeback of pianist Gene Harris who had been in obscurity ever since he ended his days with The Three Sounds. Harris's soulful style and expertise with blues fit in perfectly with Milt Jackson's approach and (with fine backup from bassist Ray Brown and drummer Mickey Roker) they play some typically joyful music on some blues, standards and ballads.
