The current Savoy reissue series put out by Denon is quite erratic with many misspellings in the scanty notes, brief playing time and a not-always-logical programming of music. This particular CD has four selections from the Lennie Tristano Trio, three songs from a trio led by pianist Bobby Scott, two from Marian McPartland in 1953 and three from a group comprised of pianist Joe Bushkin, guitarist Barney Kessel and bassist Harry Babasin (whose names are misspelled as "Joe Bashkin," "Burnie Kessell" and "Harry BaBashin"). The bop-oriented music is fine but the packaging could be much better.
