This CD collates 3 dates made within less than a month by the same quintet on the West Coast. The enclosed recordings with Getz, partly arranged by Bob Brookmeyer, predate his long collaboration with Gerry Mulligan. The frontline of trombone and tenor sax (without trumpet), although rather unusual, proves highly successful. The selections include unexpected oldies such as Roger Wolfe Khan's Crazy Rhythm from 1928 or the inevitable It Don't Mean A Thing, pepped up by Brookmeyer. Although the two horns are in the limelight, pianist John Williams also contributes several remarkable solos. All in all, this short-lived group has rarely been ranked among Getz's best but the present music underlines just how well it played that summer of 1953.
