Pianist Horace Parlan had found a level of comfort during 1960-61, recording with the same four musicians on three of his records. With a front-line of the brothers Turrentine; Tommy on trumpet and his younger sibling Stanley on tenor, the band is rounded out with George Tucker's bass and Al Harewood on drums. With Parlan's relaxed but subtly swinging style holding it together and Big Stan's thick tone, peppered with blues and soul inflections, songs such as "Wadin'", "Oh So Blue" and the title tune sizzle. There is a quick revisit by Parlan to his future jazz standard "Up In Cynthia's Room", which he had debuted on his trio set, just five months prior. 200 gram MONO recording.
