At its best, the loose-limbed "blowing" date must be recognized as an important element in the jazz pattern. This album is a near-perfect illustration: Cannonball and Bags rank among the most imaginative and blues-rooted improvisers of all times; Art Blakey, Percy Heath, and Wynton Kelly form a flawless rhythm section; all five are bonded together by a deep musical and personal compatibility. The combination elevates the straight-ahead jazz session to an art form. Blues Oriental, Things Are Getting Better, Serves Me Right (take 5), Groovin' High, The Sidewalks of New York (take 5), Sounds for Sid, Just One of Those Things, plus CD bonus tracks Serves Me Right (take 4), The Sidewalks of New York (take 4).
with Wynton Kelly, Percy Heath and Art Blakey
