This live set (recorded at the Village Gate) finds pianist/composer Horace Silver and his most acclaimed quintet (the one with trumpeter Blue Mitchell, tenor saxophonist Junior Cook, bassist Gene Taylor, and drummer Roy Brooks) stretching out on four selections, including his new song, "Filthy McNasty." There are two bonus tracks on the Rudy Van Gelder remastered version on CD -- "It Ain't S'posed to Be Like That," which is six and a half minutes long, and the full version of "Cool Eyes," which takes the originally released set out.

    A fine piece of Silver. Great group and sound.

    This is a fine recording of Horace Silver, with two great bonus tracks, and begins with a nifty little song called: "Filthy McNasty", I love that title, and features great, tight, playing, by Mr. Silver and his band. Get this.
