From the back cover: This album was recorded in Chicago with the band that Oliver Nelson brought from New York for a concert presented by jazz DJ Daddy-O Daylie (Two exceptions are the Chicagoans, Arthur Hoyle and Kenny Soderblom.

As is normally the case with Nelson's music, the challenges presented made the musicians function at top efficiency and there was a festive, enthusiastic atmosphere in the studio.

From Billboard - August 15, 1964: For those who like their jazz big and swingin', Oliver Nelson provides it here. The arrangements are stimulating and creative. The personnel gathered for this Chicago recording session are all top-notch sidemen, giving Nelson's tenor sax solos rich, full assistance.
