One of Shelly Manne's best early sides – a session that features arrangements and tunes by some of the best of the west coast scene – Jimmy Giuffree, Bob
Cooper, Shorty Rogers, Jack Montrose, and Marty Paich – played by a group that includes Paich, Manne, Russ Freeman, Shorty Rogers, Don Fagerquist, and Bob
Enevoldsen. The tunes have that wonderful tightness of Manne's best 50s work – modern, but not stuffy, cool, but still swinging very very nicely! Titles include "Etude De Concert", "Shapes Motion Colors", "Dimension In Thirds", and "Alternation".
