From the back cover: The club is called the Crossway Airport Inn. A 10-piece band (all University of Miami music students) plays there. Word has gotten around that they are good – very good. It has gotten around to Al Caiola, infectious guitarist, down from New York on a vacation in Florida. Al visits. He sits. He listens. He smiles. He signs the group to record with him. And that group is on it's way. – Mort Goode
