Yes it's a wonderful recording.

The Monk recording I also mentioned gayge has some of the most ahead of it's time drum phrasing/accompaniment you are likely to hear on ANY recording in 1958 without doubt. Shades of things to come in regards to Jack Dejohnette and many others to follow later who played from this certain school of group playing/drum phrasing/accompaniment type of approach that "father" Roy set the path and blazed the trail for.

Find a copy and hear for yourself you will not be disappointed.
