This is only journeyman jazz guitarist Jackie King's second solo album of instrumentals though he also did a duet album with longtime associate Willie Nelson and appears on other recordings following Nightbird, which consisted mostly of originals. This time around, he has adopted a trio format, backed by bassist Wilbur Krebs and drummer/percussionist Michael Aragon for a set of standards with the word "moon" in the title, such as "Moon River" and "Moonlight in Vermont."
