  • Art Farmer - flugelhorn, trumpet
  • Clifford Jordan - tenor saxophone
  • Kenny Burrell - guitar
  • James Williams - piano
  • Rufus Reid - acoustic bass
  • Marvin "Smitty" Smith - drums

Flugelhornist Art Farmer recorded quite a few records with tenor-saxophonist Clifford Jordan during the late '80s/early '90s. This sextet outing (which also includes guitarist Kenny Burrell, pianist James Williams, bassist Rufus Reid and drummer Marvin "Smitty" Smith) was one of their better efforts. With the exception of "Like Someone in Love," all of the material is obscure. James Williams contributes three tunes that alternate with songs by Donald Brown, Thad Jones, Kenny Drew and Clifford Jordan. The advanced hard bop music has enough unpredictable moments to hold one's interest.
