When the earliest of these pieces were recorded in 1954, the Lighthouse in Hermosa Beach had become one of Southern California's busiest clubs and a thriving center of West Coast jazz. A regiment of bright young musicians tired of life on the road had settled in the Los Angeles area, where it was possible for a lucky few to make a daytime living in the studios and satisfy their artistic needs by playing jazz. Howard Rumsey gathered some of the most talented of these young men as the Lighthouse All-Stars. Many of Rumsey's sidemen have survived as durable jazz stars, among them Bud Shank, Bob Cooper, Conte Candoli and the late Frank Rosolino. Half of the charts in this collection are by Bill Holman, already established in the early 1950s as one of the finest jazz arrangers.

Another Great West Coast Jazz LP

Wanted to add something to my order for "Music for Lighthousekeeping" so I picked this. This is every bit as good as that album, if not better. Energetic west coast bop, very melodic.

The copy I received from AS had the yellow sticker and was a Fantasy-era OJC pressing. Deadwax markings confirmed it as well. Just thought I would mention this for people that are picky about what type of OJC pressing they buy.
