It is a mid-winter's day, 1954. The French publication, Jazz Hot", comes out with the French jazz poll results: Jimmy Raney has just been voted "Number One Guitarist". That same evening, the Jazz Club U.S.A. tour plays a one-night stand in Paris. One of the featured groups is the Red Norvo Trio. Featured with the trio was Jimmy Raney. Some weeks later this LP was cut with Bobby Jaspar, Maurice Vandair, Jean-Marie Ingrand and Jean Louis Viale. These Paris recordings gave the American audiences an opportunity to hear not only more of Raney's fine style and sound, articulated as always with brilliance and taste, but also something of what was going on in jazz across the ocean.
