Notes and Editorial Reviews

From note one, this band is swinging and In the Pocket!  Amongst the first dozen recordings issued by the then-fledgling Concord Jazz label, these two inspired sextet sessions—co-led by Herb Ellis and Ray Brown—virtually defined the early Concord Jazz sound.  Disc One—After You’ve Gone—captured this amalgamation of all-star jazzmen an unbridled jam, live at the Concord Jazz Festival.  Disc Two—Hot Tracks, with Mike Melvoin replacing George Duke in the lineup—documents the hard-swinging stalwarts jamming in an encore session in the recording studio.  These two Concord Jazz classics are a must for anyone who likes fun-loving, swinging jazz.
