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).
