AllMusic Review by

Baritonist Nick Brignola (who doubles on soprano) meets up with trombonist Bill Watrous in a quintet also including pianist Dwight Dickerson, bassist John Heard and drummer Dick Berk for boppish music that is often explosive. On a superior repertoire including Horace Silver's "Quicksilver," Billy Strayhorn's "Smada" and Kenny Dorham's "Blue Bossa," the individual solos and the interplay between Brignola and Watrous give one plenty of reasons to search for this swinging release.
