Drummer Jake Hanna
has only led a handful of recording sessions through the years, although he has been a sideman on a countless number. This well-played, if conventional, mainstream date with trumpeter Bill Berry
, tenor saxophonist Richie Kamuca
, pianist Nat Pierce
and bassist Monty Budwig
is most notable for having four rare late-period vocals by the still viable Mary Ann McCall
. Among the high points of the instrumentals are "Robbin's Nest," "It's Sand Man" and "Castle Rock."
