Jazz trombone players regard this album with special fondness; it includes some of Slide Hampton's best recorded playing.

While "not spraying the studio with baritone graffiti" is a clever line, it doesn't do justice to Pepper Adams, who was never less than a thoughtful, witty, and totally commanding musician--one of the most masterly players ever on that instrument.

"There's none of the frantic feel that's typically evident on Blue Note sessions of the period."

"Typically evident"? Can't think of ANY Blue Note albums of the period that had a "frantic feel." Name some.
