AllMusic Review by

This two-LP set has five of the eight selections included on The Kicker, four of the seven numbers from Tetragon and the full album originally titled Power to the People. A fine sampling of Joe Henderson's better Milestone recordings (although dwarfed by his eight-CD "complete" box set), the great tenor is heard in groups ranging from quartets to sextets with such sidemen as trumpeter Mike Lawrence, trombonist Grachan Moncur and keyboardists Kenny Barron, Don Friedman and Herbie Hancock; highlights include "Chelsea Bridge," "If," "Invitation," "Black Narcissus" and "Lazy Afternoon."
