Nothing in music is as exhilarating as a big band in full cry. There are few such big bands left, and none has such an abundance of brilliance - in each chair - as the Philip Morris Superband. And the leader, Gene Harris, keeps on setting the groove with instant, blues-powered authority. "That's what you have to do," Gene says. "You have to set the groove right away." And then the momentum keeps building.

from the liner notes by Nat Hentoff
