Superb digipack edition for Shorty Roger's fans with fully illustrated 24-page booklet (rare & unpublished photos). This 2-CD release contains 5 complete LPs + 1 EP:

-Modern Sounds by Shorty Rogers & His Giants (Capitol 10" H294)
-Shorty Rogers and his Giants (RCA Victor LPM-1195)
-Cool and Crazy (RCA Victor 10" LPM-3138)
-Hot Blood (RCA Victor 7" EPA-535)
-Shorty Rogers Courts the Count (RCA Victor LJM-1004)
-The Big Shorty Rogers Express (RCA Victor LPM-1350)

This set truly demonstrates what was defined as the "West Coast Jazz" but, in fact, was the Shorty Rogers style. We can hear arrangements of a loose variety, played by the most outstanding group of musicians of the Los Angeles scene. The music presented here is a major example of Shorty Rogers' great talent, and a milestone in the orchestral idiom of modern jazz. Shorty's writing and playing were a pretty honest reflection of his own personality. If there was ever an individual to be selected as the head of the West Coast school, it definitely would have been Shorty Rogers.
