The leaders of this album were completely unknown to me before I discovered this LP.
Of course the musicians in the rhythm-section are not totally unknown...
Interesting to see the trombonist Bob Norden playing on this mid-sixties recording.
Norden also plays a.o. on Bobby Bradford's and John Stevens' collaboration which was released by Chuck Nessa in 1980.
