From the back cover: Brazen Brass Features Saxes, the fifth album in the extraordinary popular series, offers today's sound-conscious public still another first. In this exciting collection Henry Jerome's Brazen Brass orchestra adds two complete saxophone sections to the characteristically captivating sound – complemented and punctuated throughout the album by the now-famous Brazen Brass trumpets and trombones.

From Billboard - July 31, 1961: The sax section for the first time in the "brazen brass" series, gets the spotlight treatment here, and the big crew undertakes fancy stereo interpretations of a number of swing era war horses, like "Don't Be That Way," (Goodman); "Sunrise Serenade," (Miller), etc. The date was set up with five-man sax sections on both right and left. These chatter back and forth in an interesting question and answer technique, with brass and rhythm in the center. Stereo fans will dig this new approach, and the set can be expected to do solid business.
