Of all the many sessions recorded by Barney Kessel for Contemporary (dating back to 1953), none was more remarkable in terms of personnel and performance than this aptly named set. Not only is there a second guitarist in the person of Jack Marshall, and a powerful pair of hornmen in Joe Gordon and Art Pepper, but the rhythm section is one of the best ever, with Jimmy Rowles, Monty Budwig, and Shelly Manne. Moreover, Kessel reaches back for some of the really old standards, updating them in a style that is consistently exhilarating.

with Art Pepper, Joe Gordon, Jimmy Rowles, Jack Marshall, Monty Budwig, Shelly Manne
