Contains the track "The Girl From Ipanema" (Jobim) performed by The Anita Kerr Singers.

This album is packaged in a "Special Collector's Edition" container [gatefold cover].  Program and biographical notes by Skitch Henderson on inside of "container".

The explanation for the unusual title of "1133" may be contained in this bit of RCA Victor history:

"In 1969, RCA Victor moved to 1133 6th Avenue at 44th St (NY). In the 1980s the building and surrounding properties were acquired by the CUNY (City University of New York) and used by them until the late 1990s. The entire block was destroyed when Baruch College expanded but prior to demolition, while empty, the building was rented for use in the filming of the 1997 film "The Devil's Own" starring Harrison Ford and Brad Pitt. The site is now occupied by Baruch's new vertical campus."
