"The sextets were an obvious extension of Hemphill's work with the Quartet, with the emphasis on his composition and theme-and-solo jazz; often the group will improvise round a theme stated quite simply and directly by the 'soloist'. FAT MAN AND THE HARD BLUES was both an intelligent continuation of the last decade's work and a challenging new departure."
