This recording documents a magical 60 minute set with the legendary pianist Barry Harris at his very best. Recorded live last August, Harris featured in the simpatico company of long time associates Charles Davis (tenor sax), Roni Ben-Hur (guitar), Paul West (bass) and Leroy Williams (drums). The Tadd Dameron classic "Casbah" is the opener for this perfectly paced program which includes three originals by Harris, one by drummer Leroy Williams and a unique version of "Round Midnight" that starts off with three introductions: one by Harris, the original by Cootie Williams, and one by Monk. The songs "7-4-3" is an example of Harris' creative brilliance, and was composed on the spot with the audience's participation.
