Owning both this disc and Live at Slugs’, Volume 1 is essential for hardcore Jazz fans. Part two of the Slugs’ date is just as impressive and again features three originals all penned by the group. Here we get a better example of Tolliver’s compositional work with the touching Coltrane tribute Our Second Father. Again Tolliver’s trumpet is simply stunning. The rhythm section of Cecil McBee and Jimmy Hopps also deserves mention as these two really drive the quartet along in a similar fashion to Garrison and Jones did with Coltrane. The McBee original Wilpan’s also highlights the strength of McBee’s writing and is probably the pick of the tunes here.
