The most easily available of tenor saxophonist Paul Gonsalves'
infrequent sessions as a leader, this CD is a straight reissue of his original Jazzland LP. Three songs (including two ballads) showcase Gonsalves
in a quartet with pianist Wynton Kelly
, bassist Sam Jones
and drummer Jimmy Cobb
, while five other pieces add cornetist Nat Adderley
(in his prime during the era) to the band. The music is straight-ahead and shows that Gonsalves
was quite capable of playing with younger "modernists."
