Before we delve any deeper into this Jazz classic, let's get a gander at the cast of characters, the pantheon of absolute bop deities that "star" rather than simply play. Yes, this was the pinnacle of super group and all under the guidance and leadership of Oliver Nelson. So is it as good as one would expect? Absolutely, maybe even better.

Hell yes Aesop, a truly masterful work.
Amazing how Nelson managed to speak so audibly through such a heavy-weight unit.
These arrangements shook the foundations of jazz and pushed the limitations of bop. Excellent choice.
Such a great great great record.
Thanks, Ace. Sublime!
