Review

On this 1985 Concord release, bassist Ray Brown heads an all-star quintet featuring trombonist Al Grey, guitarist Ron Eschete, pianist Gene Harris, and drummer Grady Tate. The majority of the selections on the set are blues (including "Night Train," "Rocks in My Bed," "Jumpin' the Blues," and a pair of Brown originals) with "If I Could Be with You (One Hour Tonight)" being a temporary departure. Grey, Eschete, Harris, and Brown have plenty of concise solos, Tate is typically excellent in support, and the results should please straight-ahead jazz fans. ~ Scott Yanow
