Back in the early Sixties, the Basso Valdambrini Sextet represented without doubt the best Italian Jazz example. Under the direction of tenorist Gianni Basso and trumpeter Oscar Valdambrini, we had a super-dynamic combo featuring a bunch of young, expert musicians such as Dino Piana - trombone, Renato Sellani - piano, Giorgio Azzolini - bass and Lionello Bionda - drums.

As winners of the 1962 "Best Modern Jazz in Italy" contest, they released this album that can be easily considered as a landmark record in European Jazz. A fresh and ultra-swinging program based on fine renditions of classic tunes by Jackie McLean, Benny Golson, Dave Brubeck, Junior Mance and a couple of originals including a heartfelt tribute to master Coltrane.
