Tony Fruscella was an under-recorded cool jazz trumpeter in the Chet Baker vain, who only managed to release this lone studio date for Atlantic in March 1955. With the exception of Fruscella's playing on a few Stan Getz sessions, he could never overcome obscurity. He is backed by a great, albeit little-known horn section of Allen Eager on tenor saxophone (who played similar sounds with Gerry Mulligan), Charles Mingus' associate Danny Bank on baritone, and Chauncey Welsch on trombone.

Tony Fruscella has a unique sound: hanging almost exclusively in the low and middle register of his horn, he manages to produce a fat, fleshy but whispery tone at the same time - a dense and flowing fog. He's a patient, melodic soloist who can suddenly surprise with probing, intricate phrases: a great storyteller, really. At his side on this sole album he recorded as a leader, a great little band: the rare Allan Eager on tenor, Bill Triglia on piano (he would later play on Mingus' "Tijuana Moods"), Bill Anthony on bass and Junior Bradley at the drums. Danny Bank (bari) and Chauncey Welsh (trombone) join in on two numbers, "Muy" & "Salt".
