The second of four recordings by Out of the Blue, a band that helped spotlight the talents of its up-and-coming members (trumpeter Michael Mossman, altoist Kenny Garrett, teanor saxophonist Ralph Bowen, pianist Harry Pickens, bassist Robert Hurst and drummer Ralph Peterson), features the sextet playing two originals apiece by Mossman, Bowen and Peterson, plus “Hot House.” The music is essentially hard bop, and it is particularly interesting to hear Garrett stretching out shortly before he joined Miles Davis’ band. Excellent music, although nothing too innovative occurs.
