AllMusic Review by

Originally titled The Cool Sound Of Pepper Adams, this 1984 reissue Lp features the great baritonist on an early session as a leader with the euphonium of Bernard McKinney, pianist Hank Jones, bassist George Duvivier and drummer Elvin Jones. The unusual frontline blends together better than expected and the often-explosive baritonist (who brought a new sound to his instrument) is heard in his early prime on the straightahead material.
