Trumpeter Red Rodney first met up with t Ira Sullivan on records back in 1955; they would form a regular group together 25 years later. This Fantasy date, reissued in the OJC series on LP but not yet on CD, finds Rodney joined by Sullivan (doubling on tenor and trumpet), pianist Norman Simmons, bassist Victor Sproles and drummer Roy Haynes. Six of the songs are originals (five by Simmons, who was responsible for all of the arrangements) and they are very much in the modern bop mainstream of the time.

Robert Roland Chudnick (September 27, 1927 – May 27, 1994), known professionally as Red Rodney, was an American jazz trumpeter. Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, he became a professional musician at 15, working in the mid-1940s for the big bands of Jerry Wald, Jimmy Dorsey, Georgie Auld, Elliot Lawrence, Benny Goodman, and Les Brown. He was inspired by hearing Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker to change his style to bebop, moving on to play with Claude Thornhill, Gene Krupa, and Woody Herman.
