"This is the laid back side of both Stitt and McDuff... Its not your juke box grinding Jimmy McGriff or "prototypical" McDuff stuff like HOT BARBEQUE and ROCK CANDY, instead, it shows his brilliant ability to create toe tapping basslines and gritty/soulful chord comps. The solos are concise there and to the point... and Stitt plays into it like a fish into the mouth of a shark. Again, the thing to listen is the way McDuff's yummy basslines fall into the groove of the rhythm section (guitar, conga and drums) - - The only thing missing is a very young George Benson and some hot barbeque over at Sylvia's. - - Take a listen to a bit of Jerry Weldon or Sam Yahel after this to see how these sounds, though recorded in the early '60s, are still very contemporary."
