Jackie Coon's relaxed, lyrical jazz is again front and center in a swinging program of jazz classics. "Jackie Coon is a master of the fluegelhorn. The seemingly effortless, fast-flowing and beautifully lyrical inventions Jackie evokes from his fluegelhorn border on the miraculous. In Jackie's hands, the music—the melody or the variations on it—is astonishingly lovely. He and his pals have created a quite special jazz sound, gentle, light on its feet, creative, exciting and wonderfully satisfying."

—From the album notes of Charles Champlin, retired arts editor and columnist of the Los Angeles Times, and a noted jazz critic and writer.
