Drummer Elvin Jones may have been breaking down new rhythmic boundaries at
the time with John Coltrane's Quartet but his own sessions as a leader were not
all that innovative. This quartet set with altoist Charlie Mariano, bassist
Richard Davis and either Roland Hanna or Hank Jones on piano is an example of
how the avant-garde of the era was starting to influence the more mainstream
players. The music is in general safe but enjoyable with the virtuosic bassist
Richard Davis often taking solo honors on what was in reality a modern bop date.
