These recordings established Jimmy Raney (1927-1995) as a leading modern jazz guitarist, and introduced two potentially major young jazz talents: trumpeter John Wilson, and altoist Phil Woods.

Raney was both a maturely thoughtful and emotionally honest mind. As a result, he avoids effects as an end in themselves, and whatever he played in a jazz session, he felt. Thereby he communicated directly to the listener whether his communicative materials were complex or simple. He was a man of calmly exciting conception.
