AllMusic Review by

For the fifth of Horace Tapscott's seven solo piano LP's for Nimbus, he explores five of his most obscure originals; when was the last time anyone played "Stringeurisms," "I'll Have One When It's Over" or "Hy-Pockets' Swan Song?" Tapscott's playing throughout the series is generally not as exciting as his ensemble work but there is relatively little of the highly original pianist on record, so connoisseurs of adventurous jazz may very well want to pick up these interesting (if not essential) releases.
