Another from the same era in Los Angeles is: Bud Shank Plays Tenor. There is a strong concept of tone and ideas uniting all those guys. Phil Urso and Jack Montrose were two others who share that style.

Thanks Mascio, I have not heard the one with Al Cohn before, I'll check that out. I've been enjoying a lot of Pacific Jazz and similar lately, especially Gil Melle.

This era of jazz gets overlooked way too much. Here's a great one by Gil Melle who ended up doing cool and weird sci fi sound tracks and electronics in the 60's and 70's

This is really nice Jim. Art Farmer and Hal McKusick had a working quintet for awhile and i have a couple of their records; very good stuff.

BTW i'm still digging that Four Star Model you sold me a couple of years back. It is the sweetest sounding piece i own, so thanks again for that.

Ah Pacific Jazz. Led me astray, that label did. When I heard the album "Hoagy Sings Carmichael", with Art Pepper's amazing alto floating in and around Hoagy's voice, it just killed me. I was 10 when I first heard that record, and thought "I want to sound like that". That recording still does it for me :)

I never did sound like that, but that record makes me smile and laugh every time I hear it.
