Phenomenal West Coast stuff

"This cd is a very nice collector's dream from Lonehill. Even if this time they changed the original cover in this case I can forgive them. The new cover in my opinion is extremely nice so I can pass over this thing (even if generally the original cover is a must for me). This double cd collection comprehend some phenomenal fifties sessions from the guys. More or less 40 tunes from four sessions that were in the albums. Al&Zoot, You&Me, AtoZ and another earlier session. I can say this stuff is phenomenal West Coast music! The two altos create whirlwinds of sounds on tunes that are the epitome of West Coast sound! I can really suggests this collection because the music is great great stuff, no problem absolutly! You can buy the sessions separately because at least a coiuple of them are still available, but you are gonna spend a lot of money. Here they are well repackaged. But the main thing is the music. This double cd is a gem! Buy it without esitation."
