Reviews :

"The second edition of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, which features altoist Jackie McLean and trumpeter Bill Hardman, tends to get overlooked due to the original version having Horace Silver and the 1959 band featuring Lee Morgan, Benny Golson, and Bobby Timmons. Pianist Sam Dockery and bassist Spanky DeBrest, although destined to be obscure, handle their roles well behind the lead voices even if McLean, Hardman, and Blakey generally steal the show. An excellent hard bop set." AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow
