Frank Wess, (tenor sax, flute), Richard Wyands (piano), Lynn Seaton (bass), Winard Harper (drums) with special guests, Frank Foster, Jimmy Heath and Flip Phillips (tenor sax).
Wess himself has never sounded better, on tenor sax and especially on flute. Master piano accompanist Richard Wyands lifts the music to a higher level, Lynn Seaton is rock-solid rhythmically and unique amongst melodically oriented bassists, and drummer Winard Harper gives it his all throughout, yielding world-class, swinging results.
