    Absolutely bad ass. From the Blue Note LP “Doin’ Allright’ , we have Dexter being, well, Dexter. The Pride of Indianapolis Freddie Hubbard is at the very stratospheric height of his powers. And the rhythm section, as always in my opinion, creates the entire logic and momentum of the entire recording. Horace Parlan is brilliant, Al Harewood fooled me; I thought it was Philly Joe Jones, he was swinging so hard. And last but not least, the entirely overlooked George Tucker is defining what it means to play the bass properly. Here’s hoping this link works:

    Here’s a pretty darn good write up of this recording. Worth a look:
