"When one thinks of great talent scouts in jazz, the name of Kenny Dorham is often overlooked. However, many top young players benefited from playing in his groups, and for proof one need look no further than the lineup on this 1963 release: tenor-saxophonist Joe Henderson, bassist Butch Warren, and (before either player joined Miles Davis) pianist Herbie Hancock and drummer Tony Williams.
"Together the quintet performs three of the trumpeter's originals ('Una Mas' is the most famous) along with the standard ballad 'If Ever I Would Leave You.' Even if the playing time (under 37 minutes) is a bit brief, the explorative yet swinging music lives up to its potential." — AllMusic
