"The 1994 March of Jazz was a first in more ways than one. It kicked off what has become one of the foremost annual jazz events, combining the best elements of the festival and party genres, and it was the first in a series of birthday tributes to senior jazz greats. There could hardly have been a better choice than Bob Haggart for first celebrant. Universally respected as a bassist and arranger of the first rank and greatly admired as a man by all who had the pleasure of knowing him, he was indeed someone about whom not a bad word was ever spoken. And the warm feelings his colleagues had for him infuse the fine sounds captured herin." from the album notes by Dan Morgenstern, Director of the Institute of Jazz Studies at Rutgers University
