Saxophonist Herb Geller's newest recording provides over 70 minutes of excellent music. Herb performs on alto and soprano sax and sings on one of his new compositions devoted to comedian and friend Lenny Bruce. Jimmy Rowles replaces Tom Ranier on his composition "The Peacocks". This is one of the finest recordings Herb has made in recent years and marks a welcome return of his talent to the Hollywood jazz scene.
