 With this album, Horace Silver introduced his new group with Charles Tolliver, Bennie Maupin, and Billy Cobham, recorded his only encounter with Stanley Turrentine and added two more future jazz standards ("Psychedelic Sally" and the title tune) to his arsenal. From the first note to the last, infectious grooves and good feelings abound on this album.

 This set could not be more aptly named. Freddie Hubbard, Lee Morgan, and James Spaulding are ablaze throughout the four extended performances. Pete LaRoca and Big Black swing fiercely and unrelentingly. This is truly exciting music with greatly improved sound thanks to Rudy Van Gelder's mastering.

 Alfred Lion called Andrew Hill his last great discovery and Black Fire was the pianist's brilliant Blue Note debut. Despite the originality and complexity of Hill's compositions, Joe Henderson, Richard Davis, and Roy Haynes sound like they've been playing them for years. Added to the original LP are two alternate takes.

 Dexter Gordon's Blue Note debut kicked off the first of several resurgences in his career. With Freddie Hubbard and Horace Parlan's trio, the master tenor saxophonist made a great album, highlighted by his own "Society Red" and a powerful arrangement of "It's You or No One."

 Whenever Jimmy Smith and Kenny Burrell get together, the subject invariably turns to the blues in all its forms. This album which took place over three sessions is a case in point. They move from burners to sensual slow blues to Ma Rainey's classic "See See Rider" to Ray Charles' gospel-tinged "I Got a Woman." The obscure but excellent tenor saxophonist Percy Grance joins them on five tunes. Five tracks have been added to the original album.

  "The Sixth Sense (RVG)"

 With the powerful front line of saxophonists Jackie McLean and Frank Mitchell, Morgan charges through a variety of tunes with power and panache. "Psychdelic" and Cedar Walton's "Afreaka" are particularly popular on the club scene. Added to the original LP are three tunes from a previously unissued session with Harold Mabern substituting for Cedar Walton.
