The belated release of this 1986 quartet session documents the cunning interaction between Murray – the premier young tenor saxophonist of the past decade – and pianist John Hicks in a typical late-’80s nightclub set (recorded live in Boston). The program touches on styles that figure in Murray’s emphatically personal vision, beginning with Hicks’ ”Heart to Heart,” a ballad that sounds as if it might have been written by a seasoned resident of Tin Pan Alley. The title song is generally identified with John Coltrane, who learned it from Billy Eckstine, but Murray freshens it in a leisurely, inventive reading. For balance, ”Red Car” is a flat-out rocker in the ”Night Train” mold – Murray switches to bass clarinet to provide a spartan vamp for his knotty variations – and ”Morning Song” is soul-jazz with a gospel pedigree.
