Two veterans of bop, trumpeter Louis Smith and saxophonist Billy Mitchell joined by the young lion Mark Turner make the 7 th volume of “this essential documentation of jazz” an inspired recital. For Billy Mitchell this was his last recording session. “ Billy Mitchell was a dignified hero right to the end, and his playing here will stand as a fitting memorial to his resilient talent .” (Mark Gardner).

JazzReview’s Rick Finlay wrote, “… SteepleChase’s series of jam sessions drawing together the cream of the contemporary jazz world makes a refreshing change these days .”
