West Coast Jazz, Vol. 2

 

Original albums by Chet Baker, André Previn, Jim Hall, Bud Shank, John Lewis, Herb Geller, Barney Kessel, Ray Brown, Shelly Manne, Hampton Hawes and many more......

Had Los Angeles developed to the capitol of the american music industry as it became the centre of the movie business the course of jazz history would have been a different one. But nevertheless all jazz musicians of stature from the big apple passed through LA for lenghty and important gigs and recording sessions in their careers: Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, Sonny Rollins, Cannonball Adderley just to name a few.

In the forties and fifties LA was home to such legends as Dexter Gordon, Chet Baker, André Previn, Jim Hall and Ray Brown who are among the stars of "West Coast Jazz II"

16 original albums demonstrate how diverse and vibrating the different musical styles of LA musicians were, often featuring the same key musicians who were at home in all of them. The pleasant Californian weather, the steady studio jobs in the film industry and the more relaxed life style favored musical expressions who reflected this over all situation.

And it should be stated here for the connaisseur: the quality and the depth of the recording sound of Contemporary Records where many of the albums collected here were recorded was better than anything produced on the East coast by independent labels like Blue Note or Prestige.

That there was respect and comradery between East and West Coast musicians is best documented by Modern Jazz Quartet musical mind and pianist John Lewis and his beautiful album "Great Encounter" gathering some of the best musicians of both ends of North America. But here in this collection is so much to find and enjoy and all justified by no one else but the Duke: "It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that......"
