Label : Presige
Reissued on LP but not yet CD, this Prestige set features the excellent hard bop pianist Harold Mabern heading a quintet also including trumpeter Blue Mitchell,tenor saxophonist George Coleman, bassist Bill Lee and drummer Hugh Walker.Other than a brief throwaway version of "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" (which finds Mabern switching to electric piano), the music is essentially boppish, with some ballads and blues included.
