An impressive live album by Marvin Peterson who was one of the finest trumpeters in the '60s-'70s is making its return on vinyl format. These tracks were performed by the band led by Hannibal Marvin Peterson, though he had yet to add "Hannibal" to his name at the time of recording.

Here, he performed with eight musicians in his hometown of Texas, and their performance crossed the boundaries of jazz, soul and funk with skilled musicians. These included organist Eugene Carrier who also participated in the BB King Band and drummer Emry Thomas who would later participate in the band led by Johnny "Guitar" Watson.
