Commentary
Like Happenings, Stick Up! features a strong group of Hutcherson compositions (plus Ornette's "Una Muy Bonita"). But this set is much more extroverted than the one from two months earlier. In fact, the entirely new line up of sidemen brings an appealing edge to the proceedings. All of the tunes are strong, but I especially love "Verse," which has a Coltrane-like, loping intensity. Of course, this has a great deal to do with Tyner's presence, but Henderson also imprints the music with his own indelible stamp.

Tremendous.
