2 rare large group sets back to back on one CD!

First up is Saxes Inc -- a unique sax-heavy session done by Warner Brothers, and a blaring batch of tracks played by an all-star all-sax group that includes Herb Geller, Phil Woods, Gene Quill, Al Cohn, Zoot Sims, Seldon Powell, Hal McKusick, and Georgie Auld! Bob Prince arranged and conducted, and the approach is surprisingly modernist, with the saxes carrying the bulk of the rhythm and melody, as well as the solos -- a really great approach that makes for plenty of unique moments -- all handled with a sound that's a lot more fluid than you might expect! Titles include "Four Brothers" (of course!), "The Gypsy", "Night In Tunisia", "Jumpin With Symphony Sid", and "Axmobile". The second album here is the even rarer 1956 set Trombone Scene -- a session done with a much smaller group arranged by pianist Elliot Lawrence, and featuring the talents of four key trombonists -- Eddie Bert, Jimmy Cleveland, Urbie Green, and Jimmy Knepper. The sound isn't nearly as full or wide as other records of the type -- and there's almost a style that's similar to the JJ Johnson/Kai Winding four trombone project for Debut -- except that this one's a bit more tightly arranged.
