DOWN BEAT original review: Quintet IN CHICAGO
“This album points out the similarities as well as the contrasts between Coltrane and Adderley, especially the influence Coltrane had on Adderley’s playing. But a record with an excellent rating must be more than a handy device for comparison and contrast; it must have lasting musical value, be stimulating and enjoyable. This one has all these qualities.” (Don De Michael)
