On the Spur of the Moment is the fifth album by American jazz pianist Horace Parlan featuring performances recorded and released on the Blue Note label in 1961.[1]


The Allmusic review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine awarded the album 4 stars and stated "There are a few ballads, and even when things are at their hottest, Parlan's understated playing is a cue for the group to keep it tasteful, but that relaxed atmosphere is part of the reason why On the Spur of the Moment is another winning effort from the underrated pianist".[2] Template:Album ratings
