The Ray Brown Trio recorded this album live at The Loa in Santa Monica, CA, in July 1988. The club no longer exists, but at the time it was co-owned by Ray Brown.

The Ray Brown Trio consisted of Brown’s colleagues Gene Harris, who plays a lot of piano that sounds rich, full-bodied, and not overly refined. The trio also features Jeff Hamilton, one of the stand-out drummers of the latter-day Woody Herman Herds.

The CD version of this recording also features two bonus tracks, the distinctively arranged “It Don’t Mean A Thing…” and the old Nat King Cole favorite, “Mona Lisa.”
