Album Notes

Personnel: Booker Little (trumpet); Eric Dolphy (alto saxophone, flute, bass clarinet); Julian Priester (trombone); Max Roach (vibraphone, drums, tympani); Don Friedman (piano); Ron Carter, Art Davis (bass).

Recorded at Nola Penthouse Studios, New York, New York on March 17 & April 4, 1961. Includes liner notes by Nat Hentoff.

The brilliant young post-bop trumpeter Booker Little is heard here accompanied by an all-star band, including the saxophonist Eric Dolphy, the bassist Ron Carter, and the drummer Max Roach, on a set that combines elements of bop and cool jazz, as well as Little's own imaginative flourishes, which display an authority and potential far beyond his mere 23 years.
