“From the first few seconds I knew that it was something special; the recorded sound quality was unbelievable for an LP, lush and rich, and perfectly balanced. And then I heard the performances and realized what a great session it really was. The performers, Sir Roland Hanna, Richard Davis, Louis Hayes, and Freddie, are all master improvisors who like to take chances and have the chops to do it. The performers have plenty of room to stretch out. The highest praise I can give this session is that it sounds like an inspired club set. As for Freddie, this is one of his monster sessions. He practically reinvents "Just One of Those Things" at a breakneck tempo. The highlight for me is his reading of the ballad "The Things We Did Last Summer". It is simply a tour of all things Freddie; lush tone, fabulous ideas, superior technical ability, and soul. It has been known to make grown men weep (me)! This session is in my "Desert Island" stash because it is great on so many levels. Please take a listen.”-Richard M. Gunderson
