On November 29, 1974, a concert at Carnegie Recital Hall marked the reunion of Al Haig and Jimmy Raney. It was the first time these old musical buddies has played together since they were group-mates in the Stan Getz quintet of the early '50s and the classic recordings made at Storyville in Boston. 

In The spring of 1975,. they were scheduled to institute a series of Sunday sessions, but Raney went back to his native Louisville where he was living, playing and teaching most of the time since leaving New York in the late '60s. Fortunately there was a collaboration at the Sea Cliff, Long Island studio of Gerry Macdonald's Choice records and this piece of bonne chance looms larger with each playing. 

These two modern music masters and once again applying their magic to material from the past and present. New perspectives are illuminated not only in the reprise of classics like Out of Nowhere and 'Round Midnight but in the fresh interpretation of Dolphin Dance and Freedom Jazz Dance.
