For this straight-ahead set, pianist George Cables is joined by bassist Jay Anderson and drummer Adam Nussbaum. Cables is heard throughout in top form, reviving Gene Ammons' obscure but appealing "Woofin' and Tweetin'," digging into Thelonious Monk's "I Mean You," recalling Bill Evans on "Who Can I Turn To," and contributing three originals. Cables has long been underrated and he has been heard in a variety of settings through the years. This is one of his best boppish dates.
