Freddie Gambrell was a little known West Coast pianist playing at San Francisco's Bop City club when, in 1956, Chico Hamilton heard him for the first time. "I was so impressed while listening to him play that I felt I must play with this guy "which often happens to a musician when he hears something that he really digs, especially if he is right there when it's happening and so I did," said Hamilton. Gambrell's fresh, lively talent was immediately accepted throughout the jazz scene when his playing was heard on his first album, under Chico Hamilton's leadership.  His second and introductory album as a piano soloist fulfilled the promise of his previous work under Chico's aegis. And it provided yet another example of the uncanny pianistic technique and sheer beauty and delicacy of tone and touch so often found in artists whose sight has been impaired.
