    Due to a well received appearance on KABC-TV's "Stars of Jazz", a half hour show hosted by Bobby Troup, Paul Togawa's quartet album was Mode's best selling release during the spring of 1958. This was also Gabe Baltazar's first recording and is one of the few recordings featuring pianist Dick Johnston.
