AllMusic Review by

Only Tommy Flanagan's second album as a leader in 15 years, this little-known date (a trio session with bassist Ron Carter and drummer Roy Haynes) was recorded at a period when the pianist was suffering from the anonymity (if gaining financial security) of backing singer Ella Fitzgerald. All but four of the nine selections are quite obscure, but the music is accessible and consistently swinging. This out-of-print LP is worth picking up if it can be found.
