An excellent hardbop session from the glory days of the Savoy label – easily one of the label’s key 50s classics! Drummer Kenny Clarke’s at the front of the group – but all players are great, and the set features work by Cannonball Adderley on alto, Jerome Richardson on tenor, Donald Byrd on trumpet, Nat Adderley on cornet, Hank Jones or Horace Silver on piano, and Paul Chambers on bass. The Adderley brothers sound especially great – and the young Cannonball has a quality here that’s more soulful and sharp-edged than his work on Mercury – much more in a Prestige blowing session style! Titles include “Late Entry”, “Chasm”, “Bohemia After Dark”, and “Hear Me Talkin To Ya”.

While Loggins and Messina created many fine albums this one stands out as most representative of their impact. In the early ’70s the duo pioneered true country/rock and showcased it with style and near-flawless performances.
