This LP draws its material from three separate sessions led by drummer Chico Hamilton. Hamilton teams up with guitarist Howard Roberts and bassist George Duvivier for two songs, has two others in a trio with guitarist Jim Hall and bassist George Duvivier, and for the final four numbers is heard in the second version of his famous Quintet (the only selections that actually include Paul Horn). The latter selections feature Horn on various reeds (flute, clarinet, tenor, alto and piccolo), cellist Fred Katz (who wrote the four songs), guitarist John Pisano, bassist Carson Smith, and Hamilton.
