Featuring a top-drawer backing band of Wynton Kelly (piano), Curley Russell (bass) and Max Roach (drums). Griffin’s composition Mil Dew is one of the most intense album-openers in Blue Note history Elsewhere there are two other fine Griffin originals (Chicago Calling, Nice And Easy) and classic takes on These Foolish Things, Lover Man and It’s All Right With Me. The album perfectly showcases Griffin’s fiery, hard-driving, technically masterful style
