Notes: I picked this record up at a flea market for the front cover graphics and was pleasantly surprised by the music within. As the title says it is a collection of jazz with some swinging percussion to keep the beat. From his background with such luminaries as Maynard Ferguson, Stan Kenton and Woody Herman, Bill has put together his quartet to support his ever clear horn work. A nice selection of material leaves the listener wanting more. All arrangements and the six original tunes are to be credited to the piano player, Bob Freedman. As mentioned earlier the cover has simple yet effective graphics and the inner cover has extensive liner notes discussing each tune at length. A fine find.
