3 very unusual slices of work by trumpeter Charlie Shavers -- proof of his vitality and the range of his powers during the 50s! The first 4 tracks on the set are from the Horn Of Plenty 10" LP recorded for Bethlehem -- a pretty weird little record for trumpeter Charlie, done as a "story of the jazz trumpet", and featuring narration by Al Jazzbo Collins! Collins talks his way through the set -- providing some hipster speak that sets that stage for a variety of older tunes featuring Shavers on solo.
