Album Remarks & Appraisals:

As the UK found itself suddenly gripped by the Trad Boom during the early 1960s, a few of Britain's top modern jazzmen fought a short rival campaign aiming to take their type of music to the top of the charts. Very few of these jazz "singles" found success - John Dankworth's African Waltz the most notable exception - but the majority slunk down the charts into obscurity.
