Description:Reissued on CD for the first time!
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!

Bob Brookmeyer Featuring John Williams and Red Mitchell is a wonderful small combo album that features the valve trombonist in three different sessions. The first session in July 1954 featured John Williams on piano, Bill Anthony on bass and Frank Isola on drums and produced Tracks 3 and 4; The second session in October 1954 had the same group with Red Mithell replacing Anthony and produced Tracks 1, 5 and 7; the third session in June 1957 was by Brookmeyer's regular group at the time, with him playing the piano, plus Jimmy Giuffre, Jim Hall, Ralph Pena and Dave Bailey and produced Tracks 2 and 6.

Despite its mish-mash nature, this rare album, released on CD for the first time, is full of joyous music. A great example of West Coast jazz at its prime!

Recorded July and October 1954 and June 1957.
