This release couples two albums recorded in early 1962 by nearly the same big band, conducted by Ernie Wilkins. While Bursting Out With the All-Star Big Band (Verve V&-8476) presented the Oscar Peterson Trio (with Ray Brown and Ed Thigpen) plus the Wilkins aggregation, Ray Brown With the All-Star Big Band (Verve V6-8444) showcased the bassist as the leader (he plays cello on three tracks, leaving the bass chair to Sam Jones) and Cannonball Adderley (who also plays on the Peterson album) as a guest soloist on most of the tracks. The accompanying bands on both LPs are authentic “all star” formations, including such names as Clark Terry, Nat Adderley, Roy Eldridge, Jimmy Cleveland, Slide Hampton, Melba Liston, Julius Watkins, Yusef Lateef, Budd Johnson, Milt Jackson, Tommy Flanagan, and Hank Jones, among others.
