Jo Jones and Milt Hinton were two musicians who could raise the level of playing in any rhythm section they were a part of this historical curiosity, originally recorded for Everest, featues just the two of them exploring the rhythmic possibilities within a dozen numbers. Jones’ brushwork is matchless as usual, while Hinton’s considerable technique is also apparent. The highlight of this rather brief date is “The Walls Fall,” a fascinating reworking of the old spiritual “Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho.” While the playing time is brief at just 34 minutes, it’s great to hear two masters at work.
