This is part three of an outstanding four-volume collection from Lone Hill Jazz, which features all of the 13 sessions that West Coast alto saxophonist Lennie Niehaus recorded as a leader during his career from 1954-1957. These new editions scrupulously respect the chronological order of the distinct sessions, which were presented in a rather chaotic fashion in their day.
