The Three Suns are an original and unique musical combination. Al Nevins, guitarist; Artie Dunn, organist; and Mortie Nevins, accordianist were the first musicians ever to use that exact instrumentation as a trio. As proof of their appeal, The Three Suns' eight-year engagement at the Circus Lounge of the Hotel Piccadilly in Times Square set an all-time record for any entertainment group. Having scored on a widely successful cross-country tour, plus providing music for films in the meantime, they have returned to garner new acclaim in appearances at New York's Hotel Astor and Rossevelt Grill.

The Three Suns' intimate style may be described in many ways--homely, nostalgic, romantic-- all of which are embodied in their theme song, "Twilight Time." Its RCA Victor recording has sold by the hundreds of thousands, and remains one of the most popular mood-setters in the country today.

The numbers in this collection display a great variety of instrumental effects. The hushed, plaintive tones of "Painting the Clouds with Sunshine" are a striking contrast to the iridescence in "My Isle of Golden Dreams," and show to what a great degree The Three Suns are capable as arrangers. With pianist Larry Green they combine in four mood selections. "Tenderly," "Jet" and the film score from "The Glass Mountain" represent a new kind of suspended, lighter-than-air music designed for restful listening. In "Petite Waltz," such atmosphere tends to vanish beneath the insistence of this charming salon-melody.

These moods are vivid examples of The Three Suns' art in its universal wealth of appeal.
