Reviews :

“For a brief time, tenor saxophonist Clifford Jordan and trumpeter Art Farmer were the frontline of the Horace Silver Quintet. This 1997 CD reissue finds the group (which also includes bassist Teddy Kotick and drummer Louis Hayes) performing five of Silver's lesser-known originals and the standard "Ill Wind." The lyrical Farmer and the up-and-coming Jordan have plenty of fine solos, as does the influential Silver, whose funky, witty style stood apart from the prevailing Bud Powell influence of the era. Although none of the newer songs caught on as standards, this set (which has plenty of mood and groove variation) holds together very well and still sounds fresh 40 years later.” AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

 

“The players are in as fine a form as I've ever heard them, and the session is the only one by this quintet to feature [Clifford] Jordan on tenor, replacing Hank Mobley. Jordan adds intensity to the mix, evoking Mobley's thick tone but also Dexter Gordon's fluency and Sonny Rollins's improvisational zest. His solo on 'The Outlaw' is a head-spinner. This is another 'Tone Poet' reissue of a Blue Note classic, and, while the sound falls a little short of the best in this series (the band doesn't quite pop from the speakers in 3D), it still sounds damn good in the usual ways: dynamic, tonally true, and sizzling.” Fred Kaplan, Stereophile, January 2021
