From the back cover: Charlie Shavers was delighted at the prospect of displaying his trumpet in such a musically astute setting. Despite the fact that he never knew Gershwin, Charlie has the greatest respect for this man who seemed to sense the rigid requirements of a musician's music, and dipped his pen accordingly. It isn't so much that the combination of Charlie Shavers with strings lends itself to a successful venture, as that Charlie Shavers the musical is able to interpret in his own lyric way the composition of a man who has gained the respect of music lovers the world over for his sincerity and devotion to his art. – Joe Quinn
