Featured are the Billy May Orchestra (playing a brief version of "Rhapsody In Blue"), Bud Shank, Bob Cooper, Chet Baker ("But Not for Me"), Frank Rosolino, Julie London, Thelonious Monk ("Nice Work If You Can Get It"), Bill Evans and Bob Brookmeyer, Hank Jones, the Bill Potts big band, Louis Smith, Lee Morgan ("'S Wonderful"), Nat King Cole, Coleman Hawkins, John Lewis, Nancy Wilson ("Do It Again"), Ike Quebec, and Art Pepper ("Fascinating Rhythm"). The music is consistently excellent even if the programming (which is not in chronological order) seems somewhat random.
