O’s Notes: The Leaders are a proud group of experienced jazz musicians. They are Cecil McBee (b), Fred Harris (p), Eddie Henderson (t), Billy Hart (d), Bobby Watson (sax) and Chico Freeman (sax). These are some of the most sought after players, first call professionals. They combine here respectfully to record ten gems. There is no showboating but there is a lot of swing and even some groove on the title track! They excel on all fronts at varied tempos sometimes within the same tune as on “Evolution”. The music is fresh and easy to embrace.
