Tracks 1 through 8 feature an all-star line up with Ellis accompanied by accompanied by Stan Getz on tenor sax, Roy Eldridge on trumpet, Ray Brown on bass and Stan Levey on drums. The music is every bit as energetic as the short sound samples hint at. And even with Getz and Eldridge dominating the melody line Ellis has ample space to solo.
The final four tracks were recorded in Paris, France on May 1, 1958 and have an even heavier star studded line up. Like the forst eight tracks this was also recorded for Verve and feature power pairings of Dizzy Gillespie and Roy Eldridge on trumpet, Coleman Hawkins and Stan Getz on tenor sax and a dynamite rhythm section comprised of Oscar Peterson on piano, Ellis on guitar, Ray Brown on bass and Gus Johnson on drums.
While Ellis was always amazing in smaller trio and quartet settings, he absolutely shines in these larger ensembles - and commands the same attention as some of the big dogs from that era.
