The complete 1958 Modern Art session. Two rare complete 1958 dates by bandleaders Anthony Ortega and Teddy Charles featuring Art Farmer.

In September 1958, the budding jazz director Monte Kay decided to put together a recording session featuring the winners of Downbeats International Critics Poll Award for the New Star category of that year. The winners included trumpeter Art Farmer, tenor saxophonist Benny Golson and pianist Bill Evans. The three musicians were joined on the date by bassist Addison Farmer and drummer Dave Bailey. Although this session marks the only time that the band was to record together, the unit coalesced instantaneously, producing eight superb tracks and an album that is widely regarded as one of the trumpeters finest. In addition to the outstanding Modern Art date, this CD boasts two exciting sets with vibraphonist Teddy Charles and multi instrumentalist
Anthony Ortega respectively.
