AllMusic Review by

Outstanding sets recorded live on the West Coast in the late '50s; they haven't been available on a domestic label for years and are only on Phonotastic CDs, a small independent. But that doesn't mean they're not vital; this band still had Frank Wess, Joe Newman, Frank Foster, and Snooky Young, among others, at this point, and the CD's are superbly engineered.
