The first in a 3 disc set that represent the complete recordings from this Quintet. These 1957 recordings are pure classic jazz, long tracks give each soloist ample time to really perform. This combo reminds me of the Jazztet group with Art Farmer/ Benny Golson, and The Curtis Counce Group from the same period. The late 50’s and early 60’s were a time where dozens of young players were coming out of the bigband era and naturally got together and formed bands of their own. The talent level was amazing from this period which can be heard here.
