For this album, everything was done in one or two takes, not counting a couple of false starts. The veteran in the crisply integrated accompaniment is Gene Cherico, born in Buffalo in 1933. He had been with Toshiko when she led a trio and has also worked with Herb Pomeroy and Maynard Ferguson. He's been a member of the Toshiko Mariano Quartet since its inception. Eddie Marshall, joined the quartet about seven months before this session after sitting in with the Marianos in Hartford.
