Nelson himself called this his breakthrough album, when he learned how to write tunes and voice arrangements in a wholly personal style. It certainly contains his best-ever improvising, an inspired series of solos that hold their own alongside those of heavyweights Hubbard, Dolphy and Evans. Basing the entire set on the blues (something Dave Brubeck also did around that time on Time Further Out) was an inspired idea, giving Nelson the opportunity to stretch his imagination on a familiar but non-specific framework far away from the architecture of Broadway songs and to pace a whole album so that it coheres as an overall musical experience.
