"Drummer Mel Lewis might be best known for his collaboration with Trumpeter Thad Jones through their highly successful big band, but in this 1957 west coast session he teams up with trumpeter Jack Sheldon, tenor man Bill Holman, pianist/arranger Marty Paich and a few others for some cool and swinging sounds. Five west coast original charts by Bobby Brookmeyer, Holman, Sheldon and Paich with one standard (You Took Advantage of Me). The group is tight with nice arrangements and strong solos. Very enjoyable and highly recommended"
