The Paris shows were part of an extended European tour with arguably the finest bunch of musicians Hamp has ever assembled. The orchestra at the time included trumpeters Clifford Brown, Art Farmer and Quincy Jones, trombonist James Cleveland, tenor Clifford Scott, and pianist George Wallington. The program features striking artwork by Nory.
