A Blue Mitchell nonet session originaly recorded for Blue Note records in the late 1960's and included in his Blue Note box set. I don't recall a Jerry Dodgion, Pepper Adams or Julian Priester solo off hand, so it's Junior Cook soloing on 4 tracks with Blue being the only horn soloist with McCoy Tyner behind him on the ballads The Folks Who Live on the Hill and Len Sirrah.
