"but please, do yourself a favor, and do NOT buy it, go buy the re-issue Go/Kelly at Midnight, which has exactly the same tracks PLUS the album go, a Paul Chambers album with Wynton Kelly at the keys. The ASIN for this dual album is B000056K4H. As I write this, it costs 2 pennies less to get the two albums than this Kelly at Midnight here.
Kelly at Midnight is a Kelly-lead trio with Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones, who all participate in Go as well (Jimmy Cobb replaces Philly Joe on a few tracks). It is the best rythm section ever, and they are as good as ever."
Modern-mainstream trio jazz at its best

"This is Philly Joe at the top of his game - fiery, imaginative & supportive. My four (4) other favorite drummers are Roy Haynes, Elvin Jones, Tony Williams & Jack DeJohnette. The Wynton Kelly trio with Jimmy Cobb on drums played together for years & years both as Miles's rhythm section, on their own, and as the stellar all-star backups on record dates for Wes Montgomery, Joe Henderson and others. I believe Jimmy Cobb was greatly influenced by this album as his role with the trio around this time became increasingly assertive. Wynton & Paul Chambers are superb but Philly Joe shines on this record on the level of Milestones & Blue Train."
