The first 13 titles, dating from 1952-53, are her earliest recordings. The opener, 'Blues After Hours,' is a real surprise for Hipp reveals herself to be a superior swing/blues pianist. On 'Erroll's Bounce' she does a fine imitation of Erroll Garner. Hans Koller's light-toned tenor, which sounds a bit like Warne Marsh, is featured on the next five selections with the quartet. With the addition of trombonist Albert Mangelsdorff, on six more numbers as a quintet, these are solid examples of 1950s cool jazz. While Hipp's playing hints in some spots at Tristano, she is more laidback and already had her own fresh musical personality. The final four numbers are from 1955 with Hipp in the spotlight. Two of the songs also feature guitarist Attila Zoller and Joki Freund on tenor.
