Although a Blue Note regular at the time on sessions by Donald Byrd, Art
Blakey and others, Walter Davis made only one album for the label. With Byrd,
Jackie McLean, Sam Jones and Art Taylor, he explores six of his finest
compositions. Davis possessed the ability to write music that was funky and
catchy, but still progressive, which explains why he was one of Art Blakey's
favorite pianists and composers. "Minor Mind," "Make It" and "Millie's Delight"
are among the album's highlights.
