Newly Remastered for Blue Note 75th Anniversary Vinyl!
"An ambitious showcase for modern jazz's greatest composers (J.J. Johnson, Ray
Brown, Bud Powell, Jimmy Heath, Walter Fuller, and Dizzy Gillespie), and a
remarkable rhythm section (drummer Art Blakey, bassist Percy Heath, and the
obscure pianist Gil Coggins). A dynamic front line of Davis, trombonist J.J.
Johnson, and the bassist's brother Jimmy Heath on tenor saxophone, gives each
tune big-band weight and texture. J.J. Johnson's lilting "Kelo" and tragic
"Enigma" proceed from the orchestral tradition of Birth of the Cool, and his
taut, velvety, tenor trombone counterpoint contrasts nicely with Davis'
burnished mid-range and brassy cry." - Allmusic.com
