With arrangements by Gene Kee, Poindexter leads several all-star ensembles, which include Ph Woods, Gene Qul, Sonny Red, Eric Dolphy, Dexter Gordon, Clifford Jordan, Jimmy Heath, Sal Nistico, Bly Mitchell, and Pepper Adams. The rhythm sections are also first rate: either Gdo Mahones or Tommy Flanagan play piano, with Ron Carter or Bl Yancey on bass, and Charli Persip or Elvin Jones on drums. Poindexter is a convincing ballad player with the rich reed section backing him on "Skylark," whe he trades choruses with Gordon's big-toned tenor on a snappy and decidedly nontrational take of "Struttin' With Some Barbecue." His originals include the smoking opener "Catin' Latin," with the leader on soprano sax (and almost getting buried by the backing saxophone section at times), the brisk blues "Pony's Express," and the loping blues "Lanyop," which also features a typically daredev alto solo by Dolphy. Sadly an alternate take of "Lanyop," which appeared on the LP anthology Almost Forgotten, was not licensed for this Koch CD reissue and omitted. It's a shame that Pony Poindexter dn't get many more opportunities to record as a leader, as this release demonstrates his considerable promise. ~ Ken DrydenEtorial Reviews4 stars out of 5 - ...A gem...fronting all-star sax sections plus rhythm....It's emotive Pony all the way.Down Beat (20020101) MINT CD E' COME NUOVO
