From the liner notes: "A relaxed musician with a natural sense of song, space, and swing, Tjader was equally versed in jazz, Afro-Cuban and other Latin idioms and bridged them in a way that never sounded forced. He was a Swedish American with rhythm in his bones and an ear for melody and harmony that allowed him to play many styles of music-blues and boleros, mambo, bop and bossa nova-with grace, taste, and feeling."-Jesse Hamlin
