Nick Brignola (switching between baritone and soprano) is in fine form on this out-of-print LP, leading a quartet also including pianist Bill Dobbins, bassist John Lockwood and drummer David Calarco. The group interprests three Brignola compositions, two by Dobbins and one apiece from Lockwood and Calarco in addition to the Tadd Dameron classic "Tadd's Delight." The music is harmonically advanced hard bop and among the more memorable selections is a Brignola-Calarco duet on "Fun." A fine showcase for the baritonist.
