From the back cover: The orchestra is conducted by Stan Applebaum, who also wrote these fine arrangements. His ensemble includes nine violins, two violas, two cellos; plus rhythm supplied by Nicky Tagg's piano and Hammon organ, Milt Hinton's bass, with Harry Brewer and Phil Kraus on percussion. Heard out front in the regular Hackett group are swinging pianist Dave McKenna, bassist Johnny Guiffrida and drummer Joe Porcaro.

From Billboard - April 20, 1959: Bobby Hackett on trumpet with his trio playing blues adds up to a mighty attractive album, and this one certainly is. The tunes include "Goodbye Blues," "Weary Blues," " Blues In The Night," Davenport Blues," and other favorites. Hackett plays them all with feeling and the album makes for first rate listening.
