O’s Notes: Pianist Larry Willis leads a quintet with Billy Drummond (d), Eddie Gomez (b), Joe Ford (sax), and Steve Davis (tb). The rhythm section is quick to assert their prowess on the opener, “Rhythm-A-Ning” blazing through the changes with almost reckless abandon. The horns pipe in on Larry’s “Insidious Behavior” and “Prayer For New Orleans” swinging hard. They slow down the pace with Who’s Kidding Who”, warm relaxing tune. Larry has assembled a fine set, eight tracks which can be enjoyed repeatedly.
