Reviews :

« Booker Little was the first trumpet soloist to emerge in jazz after the death of Clifford Brown to have his own sound. His tragically brief life (he died at age 23 later in 1961) cut short what would have certainly been a major career. Little, on this sextet date with multi-reedist Eric Dolphy, trombonist Julian Priester, and drummer Max Roach, shows that his playing was really beyond bebop. His seven now-obscure originals (several of which deserve to be revived) are challenging for the soloists and there are many strong moments during these consistently challenging and satisfying performances. » AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

The brilliant young post-bop trumpeter Booker Little is heard here accompanied by an all-star band, including the saxophonist Eric Dolphy, the bassist Ron Carter and the drummer Max Roach, on a set that combines elements of bop and cool jazz, as well as Little's own imaginative flourishes, which display an authority and potential far beyond his mere 23 years.
