The trumpeter Thad Jones, who is the brother of Hank Jones and the elder brother of Elvin Jones, started performing on stage at the age of 16 as a member of the Arcadia Club Band. After serving in the military, he based his activities in Detroit and later became prominent in groups led by Count Basie and Charles Mingus. In 1956, Thad Jones released a leader album on Blue Note. The album featured a sextet with Billy Mitchell (tenor saxophone), Kenny Burrell (guitar), Tommy Flanagan (piano), Oscar Pettiford (bass), and Shadow Wilson (drums). Centered around Jones's original scores, the album not only explored Broadway musical standards but also showcased a light and pleasant performance style inheriting the serene groove of old jazz. It set itself apart from the emerging hard bop scene at that time. This reissue was released in 1994 as part of Toshiba EMI's "Blue Note LP 1500 Collection" series in Japan.
