Originally released on Derby, the international division of C.G.D. but also be aimed at Italian artists, this record was occasionally made from the meeting of Milt Jackson with guitarist Franco Cerri, defined by Milt Jackson one of the most brilliant guitarists he met during one of his Italian tour in Milan. Finding himself at 'Intra Club's Derby, one of the most important clubs, if not the most visible of the jazz scene in Italy, Cerri asked him to sing a song, having heard it before on another occasion. The result surprised the same Milt Jackson, for the warmth and positive mood expressed during his performance, so that the next time, Enrico Intra asked him to join his quartet to make a recording as a singer. The result is a collection of cover songs and original compositions recorded in the studio unable to recreate the same hot mood feelings that you can only have during a live show. Two tracks with strings were arranged by the brother of Intra, born Gian Franco, and at the session also attended the well-known Venetian photojournalist Giancolombo, already in the pay of United Press Photos and the French magazine Paris Match. Giancolombo is considered one of the greatest photojournalist in Italy and thanks to the generous permission of Archivio Giancolombo in Milan, we had the option to create an insert within this publication with unpublished photos from the original photo shouting.
