To our knowledge, this is the only 2LP set issued under the JATP series – and it's a nicely laid out batch of tracks that actually also features some discreet work by smaller combos, in addition to the usual jam session format. Disc one features "The Blues" – played by a group that includes Flip Phillips, Lester Young, Illinois Jacquet, and Dizzy Gillespie
; "The Modern Set", played by Diz and Lester Young, with the Oscar Peterson group, plus Buddy Rich, on rhythm; "The Swing Set", with Illinois Jacquet, Roy Eldridge
, and Flip Phillips and the same rhythm combo; and "The Ballad Medley", with Lester Young, Flip Phillips, Jacquet, Diz, and Roy
. Disc two features one side by the Oscar Peterson Trio, and another by the Gene Krupa Quartet with Eddie Shu. This side is great – with 2 long tracks, "Sleepy Lagoon" and "Sing Sing Sing". Album also features "Buddy Rich's Explosion".
(Clef pressing, with trumpeter logo and deep groove – nice and clean overall, and cover is great, save for one small rip.)
