  • Lee Morgan (trumpet)
  • Bennie Maupin (tenor saxophone)
  • George Benson (guitar)
  • John Hicks (piano)
  • Reggie Workman (bass)
  • Billy Higgins (drums)

Trumpeter Lee Morgan performs two funky boogaloos, a ballad and three complex group originals on this album whose music was first released in 1980. This is a transitional date with the hard bop stylist leaning in the direction of modal music and even anticipating aspects of fusion. His sextet (which includes Bennie Maupin on tenor, guitarist George Benson, pianist John Hicks, bassist Reggie Workman and drummer Billy Higgins) is quite advanced for the period and inspires Morgan to some fiery and explorative playing.
