This veteran drummer served with the likes of Horace Silver
, Cannonball Adderly
, and Yusef Lateef
, and the experience shows on this fine disc. His excellent drumming is at the center of a strong quintet, covering unusual tunes by Joe Zawinul
, Sonny Rollins
, J.J. Johnson
, and others. The band's take on "Tenderly," with an extended sax intro by Abraham Burton
, is particularly fine.
