Description:Japan-only CD reissue of Crown Records jazz albums!
Limited paper sleeve edition!


P-Vine Records of Japan should be congratulated for digging deep into the vaults of Crown Records, a Los Angeles-based label that existed from 1957 to 1972, and reissuing a series of great jazz albums, many of which had never been reissued on CD!

This album, originally released in 1964 with a misleading title and jacket, needs a big disclaimer: Gerry Mulligan appears only on two tracks (Tracks 1 and 5). The rest are by Buddy Collette (Track 2) and the Gerald Wiggins Trio (Tracks 3, 4 and 6 through 8) and Mulligan is nowhere to be heard in these tracks. The budget label Crown Records sometimes released this kind of "compilation" albums with seemingly unrelated sessions put together.

The two tracks with Mulligan feature his piano-less quartet with Chet Baker, Chico Hamilton and Carson Smith and were recorded in 1953. These tracks are fantastic and capture the young Mulligan and Baker--age 26 and 24 at the time, respectively--in their creative and swinging moments.

Recorded in 1953 (Tracks 1 and 5).
