AllMusic Review

The two sessions included on this 1998 CD (both are also available as part of Fresh Sound's three-CD Complete Nocturne Recordings Vol. One) are unrelated. The first six selections feature one of the best of all the collaborations between altoist Bud Shank (doubling on alto flute) and trumpeter Shorty Rogers, in a quintet with pianist Jimmy Rowles, bassist Harry Babasin and drummer Roy Harte. The musicians play six of Rogers' originals, including "Casa De Luz" and the debut of "Lotus Bud." The second half of the CD is actually a trio set led by pianist Lou Levy and also including Babasin and drummer Larry Bunker. Levy is quite boppish and heard throughout in top form. Well worth picking up by collectors of 1950s straight-ahead jazz.
