One selection on this album is a song leftover from Mover's Xanadu debut In the True Tradition; the altoist is heard jamming with bassist Rufus Reid and drummer Bobby Ward on "Jimmy Garrison's Blues" Otherwise this album mostly features Mover with pianist Albert Dailey, bassist Ray Drummond and drummer Ward on a variety of standards. Tenor-saxophonist Steve Hall sits in on "Twardzik" during which Mover switches to soprano. A highpoint on the album is the duet between Dailey and Mover on a lengthy rendition of "Yesterdays." Overall this set offers high-quality modern bebop.
