Jordan and Gilmore were big guns in Chicago and unknown elsewhere when they made this album with the dream team of Horace Silver, Curly Russell and Art Blakey. Jordan would become a kingpin of the New York hard bop scene and Gilmore would immerse himself in the world of Sun Ra, but these tenor masters were completely in sync for this great Blue Note session.
