For this obscure effort, trumpeter Bobby Shew and drummer Sherman Ferguson team up with two young talents who were fairly unknown at the time: pianist Makoto Ozone and bassist John Patitucci. In addition to the title cut, Lyle Mays' tasteful "Waltz For Bill Evans" and Ozone's "Shew-In," the quartet performs three standards. Throughout, Shew is heard in top form, and the interplay between his horn and Ozone is quite appealing. It is a pity that this valuable record (as with too many of Bobby Shew's recordings) will be difficult to find.
