This set features a notable pianoless combo: vibraphonist Milt Jackson, guitarist Joe Pass, and bassist Ray Brown. These three masterful players recorded together in many settings during the Pablo years, but only this once as a trio. The colorful repertoire -- ranging from "The Pink Panther" and "Blue Bossa" to "Nuages" and "Come Sunday" -- acts as a device for the musicians to construct some brilliant bop-based solos.

Milt Jackson, Joe Pass, Ray Brown -- what would one expect from three of the best players in all of jazz? And they live up to those expectations and then some. This is about as good as jazz gets.
