Released: Aug 2003
Label: Blue Note Records
The trumpeter's first release on Blue Note showcases a choice set of post bop originals (and a couple of prime jazz standards). It's nice to see Blanchard filling in the role of his old boss, Art Blakey, by giving prime session spots to his tight working band -- pianist Aaron Parks in particular is a standout -- rather than bigger named soloists.
