Frank Traynor (8 August 1927 – 22 February 1985) was an Australian jazz musician, trombonist and entrepreneur based in Melbourne. He led Australia’s longest continuously running jazz band, the Jazz Preachers, from 1956 until his death in 1985. He founded the Melbourne Jazz Club in 1958. He founded and ran Frank Traynor's Folk and Jazz Club (1963–75), which played a central role in the Australian folk revival.

Trombonist Frank Traynor gained experience with Len Barnard and Frank Johnson before forming his own band, the Jazz Preachers (which included Roger Bell, Ade Monsbourgh and Graham Coyle) in 1958. The items on this CD are unissued takes from some of his commercial recordings. The 23 tracks include Charleston, Doctor Jazz, and Saturday Night Function.

Blue Turning Grey Over You" is a 1929 jazz standard. The music was composed by Fats Waller, with lyrics by Andy Razaf. Fats Waller recorded the song for Victor Records (catalog No. 25779) on June 9, 1937. Louis Armstrong recorded a version for Okeh Records (catalog No. 41375) on February 1, 1930 and he recorded it again in 1955 for the album Satch Plays Fats.
