Description:Reissued on CD for the first time!
Japan-only CD reissue of Crown Records jazz albums!
Limited paper sleeve edition!

P-Vine Records of Japan should be congratulated for digging deep into the vaults of Crown Records, a Los Angeles-based label that existed from 1957 to 1972, and reissuing a series of great jazz albums, many of which had never been reissued on CD!

When this album was recorded in 1960, the legendary bandleader and clarinet/sax player Woody Herman was in-between his "Second Herd" and "Thundering Herd", and didn't have fixed members. Without musicians' credits it is difficult to ascertain but Hidetoshi Tanaka, who wrote the Japanese liner notes in this world premier CD reissue, says he has reasons to believe the band included Bill Chase, who would later lead a brass rock group Chase, plus Don Rader and Paul Fontaine on trumpet, and Jake Hanna on drums.

The band is powerful and swinging, with the exceptionally strong and tight brass section. A collector's item and must-have for fans of Woody Herman!

Recorded March 22, 1960.
