Their third studio date is a swinging affair, with potent charts by Boland and a number of strong soloists, including Sahib Shihab on both flute and baritone sax, trombonist Ake Persson, and drummer Clarke "A Ball for Othello." Aside from the brief opener, the standard "Johnny One Note," only "Now Hear My Meanin'," a piece composed by bassist Jimmy Woode, made much of a lasting impression, as it was recorded at least twice more by the band.

Long out of print, this Columbia LP was finally reissued on CD by Collectables in 2002.
