Review: This is Suggs’ debut disc as leader, but it is obvious he has been honing his chops for a long time. During a set that includes three of Suggs’ blues-oriented originals, eight standards, & one original by Houston Person, the trumpeter sounds fine, displaying a warm tone, solid range, and strong melodic ideas. His solos never climax or explode. Person has almost as much solo space as Suggs and he is in his usual soulful and hard-swinging form. The rhythm section always swings.
