5 stars Perfect album still from 60-s: nothing in common with later Hancock fusion, but highest level cool jazz. All musicians are stars there: Freddie Hubbard was absolut cool jazz trumpet star, bassist Ron Carter and Coleman (sax) as well. Tony Williams ( future fusion star) is still in very beginning of his career.

The music is still far away from Hancock later fusion and synthesizer compositions, there we hear cool jazz in it's best tradition. All songs are strong, but I love tha last one - Dolphin dance. Acoustic piano composition with brass interplays with catching melodism and light nostalgy.

Excelent cool jazz album, cuold be recommended to all jazz lovers. For Hancock fusion works better search in his more later works.
