From the back cover: Eddie Cano has literally and musically grown up in Los Angeles and has become a natural by-product of the local environment, which is a spawning ground for both Latin and jazz music. Out of this musical climate has grown a deep and dedicated devotion from which Eddie has drawn inspiration in his capacity asa ranger-composer-musician.

It seems to me that Eddie Cano has the remarkable talent of combining the exciting Afro-Cuban rhythms with the equally exciting yet subtle modern jazz harmonies. Eddie has new things to say and he says them eloquently. – Shorty Rogers

Also from the back cover: When I conceived the arrangements for this album I was not thinking exclusively of the devotee of Latin music or the strictly loyal jazz fan. I tried to give the album as broad an appeal as possible. It was my intention, in providing this musical road map, to direct your attention to points of interest along this musical joinery. – Eddie Cano

From Billboard - June 23, 1958: Here's an album that if exposed to jazz and hi-fi fans could result in sales for dealers. It features pianist Eddie Cano and his sextet on Latin-jazz interpretations of a first rate collection of tunes, ranging from the jazz standard, "Night In Tunisia." The rhythmic line-up makes for exciting listening. Cano did all the arrangements.
