From the back cover: Kai Winding has made the scene since the Frantic Forties, when he appeared with Sonny Dunham, Alvino Rey, Benny Goodman and Stan Kenton. In 1954, he and J. J. Johnson, another extraordinary trombonist, formed a combo so different that it is now historic – two trombonists and a rhythm section. Not even a guitar, chaps, just to give them a real challenge.

Maybe that's Kai Winding''s bit – challenge. For here is an acknowledged jazz great moving in on the turf of the "mods" and "rockers." But is not the old "battle of music" gig at all. He's moving in because he digs the current scene, and he feels how close his jazz roots are to The Rock. He's not fighting – he's marrying. And it is just this marriage that makes this collection such an exciting experience. – Notes by Gilbert S. McKea
