When trombonist Eddie Bert made these recordings he was at a point in his career where his playing was illustrative of all the eloquence that is representative of that many-dimensioned individual. Eddie had emerged as a major voice on his horn in 1954, when the Metronome Yearbook awarded him as one of the four Musicians of the Year. Eddie was one of those musicians on the Jazz scene who had been able to participate in some of the most advanced musical experiments and yet retain a healthy, creative and swinging style of playing.

The primary reason: his roots run deep into the varied streams of Jazz. As a composer, his tunes are an evidence of Eddies unpretentiously imaginative, well constructed, and melodically attractive writing.
