4.Awesome good music by an inspired band, with great solos by i.e. Gene Quill, Zoot Sims, Conte Candoli, Bob Brookmeyer and the master himself. Even the blues tracks will keep your attention.
5.This music is also a good match with the CJB on the Kings Of Jazz labelled lp on You Tube.
6.Very recommended. Price-quality ratio is beyond good.However a five star rating is very exceptionnel by me, this release becomes that verdict.
