This recording is a great example of Mobley's solid work for Blue Note in the 1950s. This particular session, recorded on 25 November 1956, features Mobley with Donald Byrd, Lee Morgan, Horace Silver, Paul Chambers, and Charlie Persip. That lineup alone should be reason enough for buying this CD. The playing is crisp and fluid, with the two trumpeters playing in unison frequently before breaking off into their focused, emotionally charged solos. The interplay between Morgan and Byrd on "Double Whammy" and "Mobleymania" is wonderful, as is Mobley's tenor playing throughout the entire disc. This is some really solid hard bop.

Tracks:
-1. "Touch and Go" - 9:17
-2. "Double Whammy" - 8:11
-3. "Barrel of Funk" - 11:20
-4. "Mobleymania" - 8:28
