Unreleased material from a really wonderful group one that features killer alto work from the great Sonny Red working here in the same kind of small group setting he brought to late 60s performances with Donald Byrd! Yet this time around, the trumpeter is Blue Mitchell who blows with a lot more bite than on some of his records of the time really taking his time to craft out long solos on the very extended tracks from this live performance reminding us that he can be a hell of a creative soloist when not caught up in some of the larger arrangements that would mark some points of his career!
