Jon Hendricks, had not recorded in over a decade when he finally got the chance with Arista. This somewhat obscure effort is quite worthwhile. Hendricks sings eight songs (including "Flat Foot Floogie," "Naima," "On the Trail" and "Blues for Pablo"); all but "Old Folks" have his own lyrics. He is assisted by a fine backup crew and, on "Flat Foot Floogie," The Pointer Sisters. Hendricks is in spirited form throughout this rare LP.
