From the back cover: It is that extra little something that Charles Magnante has captured in creating these Moods For Moderns. You will hear it time and time again in the flavor of his arraignments, in the subtle and imaginative ways that he sets the scene for each selection in his introductions. You will hear it particularly in the way that Charles Magnante has teamed his accordion with Tony Mottola's guitar to produce a fresh sound that has that bubbling sparkle of fine champagne, propelled by the firm, pulsing rhythm laid down by Moe Wechsler on the piano, Bob Haggart on bass and Terry Snyder, drums.
