A mesmeric work by an unlikely leader. Oliver Nelson hadn't recorded anything that hinted at this achievement, and he didn't near it again. This may be Freddie Hubbard's finest moment, and Bill Evans and Paul Chambers are surpassing. The compositions are complex and accessible. As a special bonus, this edition has the strikingly original original cover art title, and the record is aptly and eloquently titled.
