"Made on 2 separate dates in 1961 with a big band, this album is not among Cannonball's best. Almost all the tempos are in the medium range, and the music seems to drag. "West Coast Blues" gets a nice playing, but the album on whole disappoints."
A Collaborative Effort -Ernie Wilkins Jr. with Cannonball

"This is a great chance to hear the great talents of Ernie Wilkins Jr.All the arrangements with the exception of Stockholm Sweetnin'(Quincy Jones,arranged by Bob Brookmeyer),are from his pen.The orchestra is a great one.Cannonball contributes some premium solos over the ingenious ideas and prowess of Wilking's charts.Also, a gorgeous reading by Cannonball on Jerome Kerm's ballad 'Smoke Get's In Your Eyes.On 'Stockholm Sweetnin' Nat,Cannonball's brother,plays with great melodic invention on Brookmeyer's arrangement.There is a great range of ideas presented here.The collaborative effort is of the highest calibre,and very worthy of a careful listening.Enjoy!
