When Adderley joined the Riverside label, he was assured that his
still-unformed band would be recorded promptly, whenever and wherever he felt
ready. The quintet, featuring Nat Adderley and Bobby Timmons, was assembled in
1959 and the promise was kept that October at San Francisco's Jazz Workshop. The
memorable result is heard here - one of the most exciting, influential, and
successful 'live' recordings in modern jazz history.
