I missed this back in 2000 and just picked it up in a discount CD rack for $3.50. This is already one of my favorite Sco CDs. Billy Higgins and Christian McBride are excellent. I was also surprised how well Brad Mehldau fit into this line-up. The vibe is old Blue Note, reminiscent of Kenny Burrell with arrangements that bring to mind Horace Silver. Sco blowing on these original straight-ahead tunes is more reserved than usual with a slightly cleaner than usual tone. But he and Kenny Garrett provide memorable solos throughout. Highlights include "Big J" and "Mrs. Scofield's Waltz".
