Skimpy but nice

There are a couple of unusual (in a good way) things about this 1960 Crown date. First, all the tunes are Candoli originals (most session producers at this time would have insisted on a standard or two, I think) - and all of them are excellent. There isn't a bum tune in the batch. Second, multi-reed man Buddy Collette only plays tenor sax; he could usually be found wielding flute, alto, and clarinet as well as tenor on just about all his dates. His tone on tenor is rich and full-blooded. COUNTIN' THE BLUES is an interesting 12-bar composition, and MAMBO DIANE alternates between the mambo rhythm and straight 4-4 to good effect. The highlight is ZIZANIE, taken up-tempo - it's a terrific little tune and it swings like mad. There are also good solos all around. Vince Guaraldi is on piano, and the rhythm section of Leroy Vinnegar and Stan Levey is solid. The only disappointment here is that there is less than 30 minutes of music, which was highway robbery even in the LP days. Combining this Crown LP with another Candoli or Collette outing would have been easy to do. But the music, little of it that there is, is most enjoyable."

"Great session - regarding the playing time, Another number was recorded
at the time "COMPARISON" and not released on the original Pressing - However some years after,they re-released it again in Stereo with this additional tune making it a Seven tune Album, Released on Modern MST827.
(See the Bruyninckx Discography Page 260). I had a word with
Jordi Pujol of Fresh Sound records, and he had only been able to get
hold of the original 6 Tune Master Tape. Hopefully the 7 Track master
will be discovered in due course giving us the "Full Monty"!"
