Roger Kellaway was only 26 when he recorded this album in 1965, but he was already a solid member of the New York jazz fraternity. He had worked with a wide range of musicians including Jimmy McPartland, Ben Webster, Kai Winding, and the Al Cohn-Zoot Sims and Clark Terry-Bob Brookmeyer quintets. His training at the New England Conservatory of Music as a pianist, bassist, and composer melded with his jazz experience to form an artist remarkable for his eclecticism and unconventional concepts. A 1976 article about him bore the headline, "Roger Kellaway, A Disciplined Eccentric." His unique "Brats" validates both elements of that description and helped establish Kellaway as a composer to be reckoned with. Kellaway is supported by the veteran drummer Dave Bailey and by Russell George, described quite accurately by the pianist as "a stomping bass player."
