Tony Fruscella released only one record as a leader during his lifetime, the present 1955 LP on Atlantic Records. Several reissues of live material and studio outtakes followed his death. His career became diluted into oblivion upon recording that album, and he died of cirrhosis of the liver on August 14, 1969 at the age of 42. As a musician, Tony Fruscella followed an intermediate path between Bop (Dizzy Gillespie) and Cool (Miles Davis), a style later made popular by Chet Baker. His dense, muted, velvety sound expressed a sense of poetry full of “literary” references, in the low and medium registers, of a rich variety of tonalities that made his solos sensual, deep and somewhat melancholy. That sound is vividly portrayed in the present LP.
