Sparkling work from arranger Marty Paich -- one of our favorite large group talents of the 50s! Marty's working here with a great lineup throughout - west coast players that include Art Pepper, Bill Perkins, Jimmy Giuffre, Jack Sheldon, Conte Candoli, and Victor Feldman - all of whom come together perfectly under the masterful hands of Paich! Marty's got a way with a group that few other arrangers can match - a style that has the instruments gliding together in a really fluid mode, yet which also lets individual soloists break out for solos that are dramatic and individual, but which never lose the flow of the tune! The work here is from 2 Warner Brothers albums from 1959 - both recorded in a very similar mode that features an array of tunes from different shows, plus standards, all transformed into soaring jazz vehicles given the Paich touch.
