Woods is joined here by Curtis Fuller, Tommy Flanagan and more for this 1961 session.

"This Candid recording is such a major success that it is surprising that altoist Phil Woods has rarely recorded in this context. The all-star octet not only features the altoist/leader but trumpeter Benny Bailey, trombonist Curtis Fuller, baritone saxophonist Sahib Shihab, the innovative French horn player Julius Watkins (a major factor in this music), pianist Tommy Flanagan, bassist Buddy Catlett, and drummer Osie Johnson. This set consists entirely of Woods' five-part "Rights of Swing" suite, which clocks in around 38 minutes. The colourful arrangements use the distinctive horns in inventive fashion and the music (which leaves room for many concise solos) holds one's interest throughout. One of Phil Woods' finest recordings, it's a true gem." - Scott Yanow/AMG

"This outing by Phil Woods and other members of the Quincy Jones band is thoroughly stimulating. The music is compact in its effect, but with much telling work for the solo instruments. Woods is outstanding, while there is beautiful work especially by the french horn and baritone sax players. The title is a reference to Stravinsky's Rite of Spring, and a reminder, as is the music, that Woods is one of Jazz's savviest and most commanding figures." - David Saemann

Recorded at Nola Penthouse Sound Studios, New York, January 26, and February 10, 1961.
