"This 1997 CD reissue brings back one of pianist Hugh Lawson's rare opportunities to lead a session of his own. With the assistance of bassist Calvin Hill and drummer Louis Hayes, Lawson performs five of his catchy hard bop-oriented originals (including "Creepy Chicken" and "The Beast From Bali-Bali"); "If"; and a jazz version of "Pictures At An Exhibition." The music is straight-ahead, but not without its subtle surprises. One of Lawson's finest sets as a leader and easily recommended."
