Discomate West Coast Jazz Series

Discomate was a Japanese label that took a special interest in recording West Coast jazz musicians in the late 1970s through early 1980s. Toshiko Akiyoshi and Lew Tabackin, who were running the renowned big band at the time, helped the label by acting as producer and performer, often showcasing the talents of their under-recorded band members.

Jimmy Knepper in L.A. is one of such albums, showcasing the amazing trombonist and a very important member in the Akiyoshi-Tabackin big band. Produced by Tabackin and now reissued for the first time on CD by SSJ, this wonderful straight-ahead album reaffirms Knepper's skills and talent as soloist and composer.

Knepper (1927-2003) was known for his work in big bands, spending a long time in Charles Mingus' band as well as those led by Stan Kenton, Thad Jones and Mel Lewis, and Gil Evans. His style is based on his tremendous technique and a relaxed sense of swing, and a hint of underlying edginess and tension makes it unique. With an all-star band consisting of Lew Tabackin, Shelly Manne, Roger Kellaway and Monty Budwig, Knepper swings through this cheerful and joyous session. Recommended!

Produced by Lew Tabackin. Recorded on September 8 and 9, 1977 at Sage and Sound Studios, Hollywood. Originally released by Discomate. This DSD-mastered, paper sleeve edition CD released by SSJ Records in Japan on June 18, 2008.
