Few musicians could get the likes of John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Hank Jones, Artt Blakely and Sam Jones to be part of the quintet.  In the original liner notes by Leonard Feather he comments that it is the coming together of the various jazz styles that makes this album work.  He says that this leads to a “cohesive quality of their concerted efforts”.  The album manages to capture a moment in time prior to the recording of Miles Davis's Kind of Blue.
