Fresh Sounds winner...,
This review is from: And The Concert Jazz Band Santa Monica 1960 (2CD) (Audio CD)
Having spent an evening at a concert in the Civic Auditorium, Santa Monica I can certainly validate the superior sound capabilities of the building which was for many years the home of the annual Oscar ceremony. In 1960 Gerry Mulligan was recorded in concert in October of that year. The personnel includes many of the now legendary jazz artists of the time. The music on offer covers 19 titles from standards to new compositions and the sound captured is early stereo at its best. Fresh Sounds have been on the go for decades and they have a huge catalogue of material with many jazz and orchestral albums reissued.
