The music (which includes an unaccompanied drum solo by Blackman on "Incindyary") is modern hard bop, and all of the musicians play up to par in their concise solos; Blackman, Willis, Williams and Henderson ("Teeter Totter") provided all of the songs. A strong start to Cindy Blackman's productive recording career.
