Warne Marsh and Ted Brown playing tenor saxes are joined by Ronnie Ball on piano, Ben Tucker on bass and Jeff Morton on drums on this Classic Imperial Series reissue. The original full-track mono master tape was used on Classic's all-tube mono cutting system (including mono tape head, cutting hear and cutter head) at Bernie Grundman Mastering with Bernie Grundman doing the set-up and cutting.

"This is some very fine music by a band with an exceptionally rich collective imagination. It is clear that, in the hands of this combo, every theme is treated like a question with an absolutely limitless amount of harmonic and melodic answers.” - All Music

The "golden age" of recordings was from 1955 to 1965, at the beginning of the LP and the stereo era, where pure vacuum tube amplification helped produce recordings demonstrating unparalleled fidelity and warmth, lifelike presence and illumination.
