Despite the title and the cover of this reissue (which makes it appear that the performances are greatly influenced by music of the Far East), the style played by guitarist Pat Martino’s quartet is very much in the hard bop tradition. Martino was already developing his own sound and is in excellent form with pianist Eddie Green, drummer Lenny McBrowne, and either Ben Tucker or Tyrone Brown on bass during two group originals, Benny Golson’s “Park Avenue Petite,” John Coltrane’s “Lazy Bird,” and the standard “Close Your Eyes.” It’s a good example of Pat Martino’s playing in his early period.
