This quartet session was a perfect setting for baritonist Ronnie Cuber, who was 34 years old at the time. Joined by the impeccable pianist Barry Harris, bassist Sam Jones, and drummer Albert “Tootie” Heath, Cuber gets to swing hard on such standards as “Star Eyes,” “Rifftide,” and “Tin Tin Deo.” Throughout this bop-oriented date, Cuber shows why he has been considered one of the top masters of the baritone during the past 20 years.
