"That was part of Jon Hendricks' lyrics to the song "Little Pony" about a too little known San Francisco alto player who was held in very high regard by all his peers. The evidence is all here on this 1962 session reissued on CD for the first time. This is an all-star sax session with Phil Woods, Gene Quill, Dexter Gordon, Clifford Jordan, Jimmy Heath, Pepper Adams and others joining Pony Poindexter on this boppish set. Nice arrangements and considerable talent and imagination went into this session, "Pony's Express" rides again on this Koch Jazz CD."
