Bob Graf was a fine soft-toned tenor-saxophonist who never gained much fame nor made many recordings. For this live set from St. Louis, he is joined by fellow tenor Ron Ruff, pianist Jimmy Williams, bassist Bob Maisel and drummer Al St. James. The obscure cast plays well on the original "Funky Ride" and four jazz standards. Little unusual happens, just some solid swinging and spirited improvising in the cool bop vein.
