Along with a tremendous rhythm section of Herbie Hancock on piano, Butch Warren on bass, and Tony Williams on drums, the quintet delivers joyous performances of 3 Dorham originals including the irrepressible title track, “Straight Ahead,” and “Sao Paolo.” The striking album cover design by Reid Miles is a brilliant example of the designer’s creative use of Francis Wolff’s session photos.
This Blue Note 80 Vinyl Edition is all-analog, mastered by Kevin Gray from the original master tapes, and pressed on 180g vinyl at Optimal.
