Bill Perkins ~ Tenor Sax

Conte Candoli ~ Trumpet

Pete Jolly ~ Piano

Buddy Clark ~ Bass

Mel Lewis ~ Drums

This excellent album (a reissue LP of music deserving to be reissued on CD) is really led by Shorty Rogers, who provided the dozen arrangements and five originals, although he does not play trumpet on the date. Featuring a quintet of fine West Coast players (including pianist Pete Jolly at the beginning of his career), Rogers’ charts really set the mood for the set of cool jazz. Trumpeter Conte Candoli and tenor saxophonist Bill Perkins (heard at his coolest, tone-wise) take plenty of fine solos, while bassist Buddy Clark and drummer Mel Lewis are lightly swinging in support. This is a near-classic that has somehow remained obscure through the years, perhaps due to the group’s name.
