The 1957 Horace Silver Quintet (featuring trumpeter Art Farmer and tenor saxophonist Hank Mobley) is in top form on this date, particularly on "My One and Only Love" and their famous version of "Home Cookin'." All of Silver's Blue Note quintet recordings are consistently superb and swinging and, although not essential, this is a very enjoyable set.
Personnel: Horace Silver (piano); Hank Mobley (tenor saxophone); Art Farmer (trumpet); Teddy Kotick (bass); Louis Hayes (drums).
