Comments

first jacket: different from famous second jacket.

with original Mercury inner sleeve.

Jan. 28, 2005: replaced with cleaner copy (with same matrix information).

Inside The Groove

One of the greatest Garner's album ever.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

All takes in this album are from the same session as as for famous MG-20063 “Solitare”. One-and-only Garner's magic here! All tunes are played in awesome touch, taking full advantage of Mister “Behind-The-Beat”'s way. Dynamic, awesome, very happy tunes. All jazz fans will like them. Great.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

10 out of 10
