From the back cover: Frankie Capp is not a newcomer to the percussion world. He is one of the top men in the jazz field today, being featured as the third man in the Andre Previn trio and as featured soloist with the Dave Pell Octet. He has also been with such aggregations as Neal Hefti, Billy May, Harry James, Shorty Rogers and Stan Getz. He has at various times worked with Peggy Lee, Ella Fitzgerald and David Rose. At present he is one of the busiest studio musicians in Hollywood and we are very happy to present him as a bandleader in his own right.

Emil Richards, one of the outstanding vibraphone players of our day, started as a legitimate concert and symphonic percussion player of the Hartford and The New Britain Symphonies. In 1956 he joined the George Shearing group and stayed with him until he made his home on the West Coast in 1960. Since that time he has played with the Paul Horn group and has been very busy as a free lance studio musician.
