Reference: LHJ10238

his is part one of an outstanding four-volume collection from Lone Hill Jazz, which features all of the 13 sessions that West Coast alto saxophonist Lennie Niehaus recorded as a leader during his career from 1954-1957. These new editions scrupulously respect the chronological order of the distinct sessions, which were presented in a rather chaotic fashion in their day.

This CD features two quintet sessions and two octet sessions taken from "Lennie Niehaus Vol. 1: The Quintets (10")", "The Octet (10")" & "Lennie Niehaus Vol. 3: The Octet # 2 (LP)". Includes outstanding standards such as "I'll Take Romance", "I Remember You", "How About You?", "The Way You Look Tonight", "The Night We Called It a Day", "Have You Met Miss Jones?", "Nice Work if You Can Get It", and "You and the Night and the Music".
