Fourteen songs were recorded at a marathon Tragar session by engineer Rod Kinder, a dozen by Jesse Jones alone. Those 12 cuts consisted largely of popular covers. “Summertime” was deemed a success and was paired with an earlier Jones recording of James Moody’s “Moody’s Mood For Love.” His interpretation of “Aquarius” would later appear as the flip to Larry Daniels sole solo side, the chunky yakety sax-cum-organ funk original “Nitecap.” A squealing translation of James Brown’s “I Can’t Stand It” seemed out of place amidst the pop-jazz standards but manages to stand taller in hindsight than any other vocal-free track committed to tape that day.
