A Classic of the West Coast Jazz Genre
William Faust | Columbus, Ohio | 07/08/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Shorty Rogers just might be one of the most underrated contributors to classic jazz ever. A vetern trumpeter of the Woody Herman band in the late 40's, Rogers was one of the innovators and instigators of the West Coast sound in the 1950's. This is one of his landmark recordings that feautures the cream of the West Coast studio jocks from that era swinging on mostly original compositions and arrangements. The band couldn't be tighter and the sound couldn't be cooler. Start with this one and the work your way through the Rogers library of 1950's recordings. You won't be sorry. And listen for the Basie influence here; It's well disguised but definitely there."
