Recorded on February 11-13, 1957 at Manhattan Towers, New York City.

The solo organ works on "All the things you are" and "Zing" are surprisingly. Art Blakey sitting in with an organ trio on a few tracks is probably the only recording ever made with Art with organ (no organists in his official discography). Eddie McFadden on guitar delivers like many of his supporting role with organists. This session is classic for the '56 - '59 period at Blue Note but it's not the highlight from the same period even when you get approx.

ALL THE THINGS YOU ARE begins with a long Bachian intro before going into an unrecognizable tune, and on THERE WILL NEVER BE ANOTHER YOU and BLUE MOON he uses a trill effect that is unattractive and even a bit corny. Fortunately, on the rest of the LP he puts aside these sound experiments and plays some highly swinging jazz organ.

SOMEBODY LOVES ME also swings nicely

Eddie McFadden is on guitar and plays well.
