Performance:   Sonics:
When the first wave of CD reissues was released, I sold my Original Jazz Classics LP reissue of this album and bought the OJC CD, and regretted it immediately, as it sounded flat in comparison. This new SACD remastering gets closer to the vinyl, but in my memory the bass still sounded rounder and more defined. Well ... that aside, the sound is good and more detailed and dynamic than the OJC CD. Still I think that more could have been coaxed out of these tapes.
The music is very good, confronting Baker as the white West Coast Jazz trumpet icon with a bop/hard bop rhythm section and the "fastest gun in the west" tenor of Johnny Griffin was a great idea, and it worked out fine.
