Impulse! | 20-bit SBM
Allmusic:
For this CD reissue, an Impulse! session co-led by drummer Elvin Jones and bassist Richard Davis was brought back by MCA. Tenor saxophonist Frank Foster and pianist Billy Green complete the quartet, which performs an erratic but generally interesting set of music including "Shiny Stockings," Foster's funky "Raunchy Rita," and "Elvin's Guitar Blues"; the latter briefly features Jones making his first and only appearance on guitar. The music is essentially advanced hard bop but is not all that essential. [The 1999 CD reissue is a 20-bit remaster.]

Tracks:
-1. "Raunchy Rita" 11:32
-2. "Shiny Stockings" 5:10
-3. "M.E." 2:37
-4. "Summertime" 11:35
-5. "Elvin's Guitar Blues" 3:25
-6. "Here's That Rainy Day" 7:02

Personnel:
* Frank Foster, tenor saxophone (except on #4)
* Billy Greene, piano (except on #2 and #4)
* Richard Davis, bass
* Elvin Jones, drums;guitar (on intro of #5 only)
* Produced by Bob Thiele
