Alto saxophonist Vince Herring has steadily developed his own tart, bluesy sound, emerging from the shadow of prime influence Cannonball Adderley. There is more spark, ambition and drive in his playing on this release than any previous date; he tries new things on each number and isn't afraid to stretch out. He is working with two bands and is consistently excellent with both units, and his sparkling sound overcomes the difference in quality between groups and makes this by far his best release.
