Overview

All of pianist Barry Harris' Xanadu records of the 1970s are gems, featuring the bop master in particularly inspired form. Many of the Xanadu artists toured Japan in 1976, resulting in several records, including Harris' Live in Tokyo and this LP. This album of leftovers not released on the other sets sticks to bebop standards. Harris performs four numbers (lengthy explorations of "Like Someone in Love" and "Night in Tunisia," plus two versions of "Ornithology") in a trio with bassist Sam Jones and drummer Leroy Williams. Two other songs ("Groovin' High" and "Blue 'N' Boogie") find the trio joined by altoist Charles McPherson and guitarist Jimmy Raney. Although not containing any real surprises, this swinging, straight-ahead music is quite enjoyable.
