An excellent disk, with Jacquet well under control

(4 out of 5 stars)
"at his best, Illinois Jacquet was as sensual and inviting as any tenor saxophonist in jazz. It is good to hear the echoes of Herschel Evans in Jacquet's playing. My speculation is that Jacquet influenced Ben Webster as they moved into the 1950's. Partly because there is no squealing this is a 4 star disk because I have to save 5 stars for REALLY GREAT DISKS -- of which there are less than 100."
