Starting with this album, you'll notice that Hank's musical horizons are widened, showing the influence of a new musical voice he's writing for, the incredible drummer Billy Higgins. Hank is one the great masters of writing for drummers. If you know Billy Higgins' playing, you'll hear immediately how Hank's music fits this marvelous drummer.
This was Hank's first recording session in 1965. Later in the month (February 26) he would join Freddie Hubbard for Hubbard's "Blue Spirits" session. On March 31, he did Grant Green's "I Want To Hold Your Hand" session and followed that with his own "Dippin'" session on June 18. Next, on September 17 and 18, was Lee Morgan's "Cornbread" session, and Hank ended the year with his own "A Caddy For Daddy" session (December 18).
July 7, 1930 – May 30, 1986
