No recently discovered recordings - just "the best of his HighNote recordings" as the label says. And an excellent reminescence of one of the hottest jazz organ players we ever had. For those who do not own his complete discography up and down anyway, this CD is a representative cross-section of Earland's burning organ with songs such as "Blowing The Blues Away", "Stomp!", "Killer Joe" or "My Blues Is Funky".
