AllMusic Review by

Using the same trio that had joined him on NYC Underground (pianist Ron Mathews, bassist Ray Drummond and drummer Idris Muhammad), tenor saxophonist Johnny Griffin sticks exclusively to group originals on this interesting but not essential (and unfortunately out-of-print) LP. Griffin is in excellent form, as usual, but none of the tunes (by the leader, Drummond, and Mathews) caught on; the best is "Soft and Furry," which is taken in three parts.
