"Virtually every serious jazz record collector had Phil Bodner on dozens if not hundreds of their records even if they are not necessarily aware of his presence. A very valuable studio musician for decades, only infrequently in the limelight, his musicianship and reliability were greatly respected by his contemporaries in the studio world while his solo abilities were enjoyed by his fellow jazz musicians. This collection of previously unreleased performances, gives one a chance to hear how exciting a clarinetist Phil Bodner was in his prime. He is featured in six different settings during the 1960s and '70s, excelling with each group and interacting with some notable players."
