A killer bit of west coast jazz from the 50s – and hardly what you might expect from the title! The album's actually not the kind of aural sex you might expect (although it does have a nice nude on the front!) It is, however, one of the few sessions led by tenorist Richie Kamuca, a great player with a great edge here – one that's much sharper than the cheesecake painting, and a perfect driving force for the larger octet on the date! The album's similar to Kamuca's album on the Hi-Fi label – played with a largeish group, but a lean sound overall – thanks to the talents of Bill Holman on baritone, Conte Candoli on trumpet, Frank Rosolino on trombone, Vince Guaraldi
on piano, Monte Budwig on bass, and Stan Levey on drums. Arrangements are nicely fresh, and titles include "Star Eyes", "Linger Awhile", "Fun", "I Hadn't Anyone Till You", "Way Down Under", and "Blue Jazz".
