How did Horace cope? He saw the handwriting on the palm and turned to various astrologues and smaller stars, creating his own constellations of confluence in the fullness of hardbop time.

My favorite tune on Horace Scope is the final one, a medium-tempo version of Nica's Dream. I think that song is one of his greatest melodies, and Blue & Junior really know what to do with it. There have been many versions of this tune by many great artists, but the composer's take will always be my favorite.
