Following in the footsteps of his mentor, Art Blakey, Peterson rounds up a bunch of Berklee young lions chomping at the bit and dares them to raise the roof. They did more here than make a bullet point on their resumes. Daddio taken to the nth degree in sound and scope, this blazing set just plain smokes throughout. Each kid plays solidly without manqueing around as they work their way along on this mostly journey through the past. Blazing hot stuff throughout.
