AllMusic Review by

Considering how well trumpeter Richard Williams plays on this session, it is hard to believe that this was the only record he ever led. Best known for his association with Charles Mingus, Williams was a strong bop improviser with a wide range. For this album (which is split between standards and originals) Williams and his quintet (altoist Leo Wright, pianist Richard Wyands, bassist Reggie Workman, and drummer Bobby Thomas) are in fine form performing a set of strong hard bop.
