Bobby Timmons was one of the prime movers in the "soul jazz" movement of the late Fifties and early Sixties that had a deep impact on the various forms of funk which have remained so important a part of the music scene ever since. As a composer, he was best known for the jazz classic "Moanin'" and for the Cannonball Adderley band's first major hit, "This Here." As a pianist he figured importantly in the success of the Adderley and Art Blakey groups of the period and led his own trios. This was his first album as a leader; it provides lasting evidence that he possessed substantial quantities of technique and heart in addition to his full supply of soul.
