By 1956, when this album was recorded, Art Farmer had come into his own as a trumpet soloist. His combination of earthiness, drive, respect for melody, harmonic sophistication, and a wistful sound on ballads produced a distinctive and immediately recognizable style. The catchy "Farmer's Market" had resulted in a semi-hit for Annie Ross after she was inspired by Farmer's 1951 version with Wardell Gray. Here, Farmer's remake has one of his best solos of the 1950s. His bassist twin brother Addison is in the rhythm section, along with pianist Kenny Drew and drummer Elvin Jones, new to New York from Detroit. The underrated Hank Mobley is on tenor saxophone.

Personnel:
Art Farmer – trumpet
Hank Mobley – tenor saxophone (tracks 1–3 & 6)
Kenny Drew – piano
Addison Farmer – bass
Elvin Jones – drums
