This is Harriott on the verge of the free form/abstract period, but here, still anchored in the hard bop mode.

This is stylish, elegant, tight, swinging; whatever label of appreciation you want to attach to it, this is still fresh music creation.

This record sticks to the quintet line-up of sax, trumpet, piano, bass and drums (as on Movement), but with the added pizzazz of a superb bongos player on a couple of tracks, just to heighten the sense of hepness to the proceedings.

Partly original compositions, partly covers (including a dynamic take on Caravan), this was Harriott's first long-playing record as a leader.

Personnel : Joe Harriott (Alto Saxophone), Coleridge Goode (Bass), Frank Holder (Bongos), Bobby Orr (Drums), Harry South (Piano), Hank Shaw (Trumpet), Shake Keane (Trumpet, Flugelhorn)
