This album features the great guitarist Jimmy Raney in a trio with bassist Sam Jones and drummer Leroy Williams, all regulars for the Xanadu label in the 1970s. The boppish performances (which Raney considers among his very best) are subtle with lots of interplay between the players. High points include "Anthropology," "A Burning Cherokee," and Raney's unaccompanied playing on "Stella by Starlight.

Jimmy Raney was the definitive cool jazz guitarist, a fluid bop soloist with a quiet sound who had a great deal of inner fire. He worked with local groups in Chicago before spending nine months with Woody Herman in 1948. From then on he was in the major leagues, having associations with Al Haig, Buddy DeFranco, Artie Shaw, and Terry Gibbs. Raney was also very much at home in the Red Norvo Trio (1953-1954) before spending six years primarily working in a supper club with pianist Jimmy Lyon (1954-1960). After playing with Getz during 1962-1963, he returned to Louisville and was outside of music until resurfacing in the early '70s. During the 1970s, Raney recorded often for Xanadu. Tracks 1, 2, 4, 5, 7 & 8 recorded live at Yubin Chokin Hall, Tokyo, Japan, April 12, 1976. Tracks 3, 6, 9, 10 & 11 recorded live at Nakano Sun Plaza Hall, Tokyo, Japan, April 14, 1976.
