The crooner Tony Bennett fulfilled a lifetime dream with this percussion jazz formation: At last he could go into the studio with the greatest drummers and top-notch jazz musicians and just swing to his heart's content.

Chico Hamilton, Jo Jones, Art Blakey, Candido and Sabu were responsible for the beat while Kai Winding, Herbie Mann, Nat Adderley and Al Cohn took care of the background among other things, and such great musicians as Milt Hinton and Eddie Safranski and John Pisano tied the whole thing together.

 

To be sure: this is no LP for narrow-minded jazz purists, and certainly not for lovers of the soothing crooner — but why not one for both camps?

Recording: June - October 1957 at CBS 30th Street Studio, New York in mono and pressed on 180 gram vinyl/
