Mildly spiced Pepper
Though Pepper Adams was known primarily for his more agressive sound on baritone, especially when compared to Mulligan or Sweden's Lars Gullin, this album finds him in a more mellow mood. Champagne in stead of Scotch and water.Trumpeter Stu Williams is a worthy foil for Adams in this set-up and the rhythm section works like a charm with wonderful pianist Carl Perkins especially brilliant. I bought the LP a long time ago, prodded by by Baritone icon Ronnie Ross, who liked it greatly and it has been one of my all-time favorites ever since. That's five stars for me!
