  • Producer: Richard Bock.
  • Reissue producer: Michael Cuscuna.
  • Recorded at Radio Recorders, Los Angeles, California on October 31, 1956.
  • Digitally remastered using 20-bit technology by Ron McMaster.
  • Tributee: Jimmy Heath.
  • As the name implies, these sides reflect the influence of the tenor saxophonist Jimmy Heath, who composed all the selections except two. Performing these works is the front line of Chet Baker, Art Pepper, and Phil Urso. They are supported by the working trio led by bassist Curtis Counce that includes the unconventional pianist Carl Perkins and the underrated drummer Larence Marable.
  • Baker and Pepper make a powerful team, each rising to the task of complimenting the other. For his part, Baker displays a more rhythmic side on these mostly up-tempo tunes, often prodded by the spirited rhythm section. Pepper is his usual slick self, his snaking alto lines weaving their way devilishly through the swinging rhythms. He also contributes the two non-Heath tunes of the set, the dark swinger "Minor Yours" and the closing romp "Tynan Time." Other choice cuts include Heath's famous "C.T.A.," the intricate opening title cut and the equally exciting "For Minors Only."
