One of the most hyped jazz groups of the late ’80s, the Harper Brothers (co-led by drummer Winard Harper and trumpeter Philip Harper) symbolized what was right and wrong about the “Young Lions” movement.  The Harper Brothers broke in a big way with this much hyped recording at the Village Vanguard, it was actually their 2nd album and stayed on the Billboard Jazz Charts for six weeks in 1990. Where else to record this troupe’s music then the legendary Village Vanguard where watching a jazz group is like being at the Holy Church of Jazz.   Play it loud and close your eyes and you can hear the ghosts of Dizzy, Bird, Monk and Trane but what you are hearing are “the most brilliant new jazz group of the early 90’s”.

Danny Harper

The album was dedicated to the brothers’ recently departed father and their grandfather, and the title cut is one of its very best tracks. Written by older brother Danny Harper, it’s a midtempo swinger presented with reverential passion and signed with committed solos, especially those of Justin Robinson (tenor) and Philip Harper. Other highlights include the lively horn interplay and notable contributions of Winard Harper on “CB,” Stephen Scott’s piano work on the cover of Horace Silver’s “Kiss Me Right” and the band’s collective chops, including bassist Kiyoshi Kitagawa, on the lightning-fast set closer “Yang.” Overall, the playing is clean, sharp and makes for a very enjoyable listen. This is definitive late ’80s hard bop: excellent playing, marked by swinging, soulful melodies that don’t break new musical ground or require great effort on the listener’s part. This is a perfect album to load up in the car CD player and pass 70 minutes on the open road. Recommended for fans of this style as well as those just beginning to appreciate modern jazz. ~ Brian Bartolini, All Music Guide
