This CD has Bellson playing in large and small ensembles composed of members of Duke Ellington's band. The recording quality is typical of the early 1950's, but the music reflects the Duke Ellington band, and is excellent.

This is a compilation that all LOUIE BELLSON fans should have! It has most if not all of MR.BELLSON's best solo work recorded in LOS ANGELES in the 1950s. The music is cool and really swingin'. Also, the muscianship and compositions are brilliant,and includes some of the greatest legends in JAZZ history such as;DUKE ELLINGTON,BILLY STRAYHORN and CLARK TERRY. There are 25 songs on this cd and most of them are top notch in my opinion. This compilation has one of my personal all-time favorite JAZZ songs called:"JUMPIN' WITH SYMPHONY SID". That song is the epitome of what cool jazz is all about. "JOHNNY COMES LATELY" and "PUNKIN", are also great songs. "SKIN DEEP" is a masterpiece of JAZZ work that has over seven minutes of some serious incredible drumming. The music on this compilation will take you back to a time when slick suits,fedoras and CADILLACS were the cool swingin' thang in Hollywood, RAT PACK style! If you're a swing or Big Band JAZZ fan,then you will not be disappointed with this purchase, If you can find it. R.I.P Louie,we love you.
