I like this album. It's a decent ensemble with the tight rhythm section of Paul Chambers and Kenny Clarke, who are given plenty of space on "Gotcha Goin' n' Comin'", Hank Jones (brother of Elvn) with his lyrical touch on piano, and Frank Foster on Sax. It's a fairly low key, democratic affair, and whilst not as original as much of his work that followed with Blue Note, I would recommend it. All the tracks also appear on the "Winterset" release which may be a bit easier to get hold of.
