One of the few albums as a leader by Bob Enevoldsen – a tremendously capable player who's working here on trombone, tenor, and bass! Enevoldsen's talents graced a number of key 50s sessions on the LA scene, but his vision here is even more incredible – and really sparkles throughout, thanks to some inventive arrangements played by a combo that includes accordion and piano from Marty Paich
, drums and vibes from Larry Bunker, and guitar from a young Howard Roberts. Bunker's vibes are especially great, and often ring out with a colder tone that underscores the modernism of some of the tunes – but which is also offset by some warmer notes from Enevoldsen. The set features a number of great original tunes, and titles include "Mr Know It All", "Ding Dong, The Witch Is Dead", "John's Jumble", "You're In Love", "Bob's Boy", and "Swinger's Dream".
