The fine bop-based pianist Kenny Drew permanently left the United States in 1961 to live in Europe and eventually Copenhagen. He only recorded back in his homeland during a 1978 visit that resulted in a pair of Xanadu LPs. For this date Drew teamed up with bassist Leroy Vinnegar and drummer Frank Butler for three familiar standards, an obscurity, and three of his straight-ahead originals. The years overseas had not hurt the pianist in the least and he had clearly grown as an improviser.
