Every track here is interesting and there's an overall optimistic and toe taping feel about the entire session. Relaxed, swinging and unpretentious. Rickey comes across as a man with a cheerful outlook on life, but make no mistake about it, he is serious and caring about music! He seems at home with any rhythms-dig his ease with the bossa nova beat on Jake's Place. Zoot Sims shared this ability to adapt to any rhythmic context and swing like hell in any situation.
