From the back cover: You'll remember his (Hampton) joining the Goodman band in 1936, perhaps, playing vibes with the Quartet, drums with the Trio, and, now and then, piano duets with Jess Stacey. Since 1940, when he set out as a bandleader, he has made musical history of many kinds. His jazz concerts have cast him in the role of a jazz evangelist, for it is impossible to listen and not join him when his band begins to blow.
