The playing time on this LP (under half an hour) means that the ten selections are a bit briefer than usual. Pianist Ramsey Lewis, bassist Eldee Young, and drummer Red Holt had one of the most popular groups in jazz of the era, playing soulful and melodic versions of standards that were both swinging and accessible. Highlights of this LP include "I Got Plenty of Nothing," "The Breeze and I," and "Exactly Like You."
