"Julius Watkins as a sideman in Oscar Pettiford's group. Julius solos on The Pendulum at Falcon's Lair, Tamalpais Love Song, Jack the Fieldstalker, Stockholm Sweetin, Cable Car, and Oscar Rides Again."
"John Graas was another pioneer of jazz horn, and had a brief but very prolific career as a soloist, composer, and arranger. His solos are not up to the quality of Julius Watkins and others, but he played a significant role in putting jazz horn on the map. His compositions and arrangements make great use of horn in a jazz combo setting."
