|Recorded at Rudy van Gelder Recording Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, USA, February 1990.
"Chippin' In is by my unofficial count the one hundredth album issued under the Blakey banner. (More than likely I've missed a few.) What is amazing is not the quantity of recordings led by Art, but the consistently high quality of them. This disc stands up with the best of them and is momentous for the fine new talent it introduces and in returning Art to the legendary Rudy van Gelder recording studio where so many of the classic Messenger albums were realized. If you believe in vibes, you can credit them for inspiring this truly excellent recording."
