180-gram premium audiophile vinyl.

A great large group project from arranger Manny Albam -- one that teams him up with "jazz greats" of the east coast scene, in a really hard-swinging set of tracks that showcase some wonderful solo work! Manny's working here with a set of players who are well-chosen for their ability to work strongly in an ensemble, yet also break out with strong solo work when the moment comes -- and the lineup includes Gerry Mulligan, Al Cohn, Zoot Sims, Phil Woods, Bob Brookmeyer, and Art Farmer -- with rhythm by the trio of Hank Jones, Milt Hinton, and Osie Johnson. The tracks are long, with more room for soloing than usual on this sort of album -- and nearly all of them are originals by Manny. Titles include "Minor Matters", "Blues From Neither Coast", and "Latined Fracture".
Art Farmer, Nick Travis (trumpet); Zoot Sims (tenor sax); Al Cohn (tenor and baritone sax); Gerry Mulligan (baritone sax); Phil Woods (alto sax); Bob Brookmeyer (trombone); Hank Jones (piano); Milt Hinton (bass); Osie Johnson (drums); Manny Albam (arranger)
