Liner Note Author: Drew Kent.
Shorty Rogers was one of the leading proponents of the bebop revolution on the West Coast, and this nicely assembled five-disc box set amply represents his contribution. Beginning in 1946 and continuing through to 1954, VOLUME 1 provides an in-depth overview of Rogers's early work as a bandleader, arranger, and trumpeter. At 93 tracks, there's no shortage of evidence of Rogers's talents, and the set has the added advantage of being a valuable time capsule of the West Coast wing of the bop revolution.
