Since its inception in 1959, the Jazztet went straight up in critical acceptance and general popularity. In this, their second album, the entire personnel was reshuffled, and only the leaders remained: Art Farmer and Benny Golson.

None of the changes were for the worse, judging by the present evidence. Most of the groups value lies in the virtues of its soloists, but their presentation in a skillfully planned settingrather than in rambling ad lib excursions of arbitrary lengthwas an added plus factor of its success.
