In the midst of the 1950s, Dave Pell was one of the so-called "cool" jazz musicians on the West Coast of the United States, though he hasn't received as much recognition as others. Utilizing a variety of charts by talented arrangers including Johnny Mandel, Marty Paich, Jack Montrose, Wes Hensel, and Shorty Rogers (who also conducted the sessions), Pell's octet interprets the charts with gusto. For those not familiar with Pell's work, these sessions are similar in nature to recordings by Gerry Mulligan. The outstanding group includes baritone saxophonist Bob Gordon, trumpeter Don Fagerquist, and trombonist Ray Sims. In addition to the usual standards, Pell delves into infrequently heard gems like "Shuffle Off to Buffalo" (from the Broadway musical 42nd Street) and even a playful take of "Deep in the Heart of Texas." This is a very enjoyable LP that has been out of print for decades and it may be somewhat challenging to locate. ~ Ken Dryden

Rating 4.0 Music is fine!! Titles are way off!! Music Lover: from Flint, MI US -- January, 8, 2010

The music is as remembered back in the 50's. No problem there. However, be warned that the track titles as listed on the jewel case are way off!!
IE: Jewel Case lists "On A Slow Boat To China" as track 2, but it's actually track 8 on the CD, and was track 10 on the original LP. Go figure???
