In just one CD an exceptional double program spanning the past and the present of a great musician. The Jack Nimitz-Bill Harris Group is playing the first part of the CD in an unreleased session arranged by Bob Zief and originally produced by Creed Taylor for the ABC-Paramount label and cut in New York in 1957. The second act was recorded in Hollywood in 2007 featuring the baritone sax mastery of Nimitz (in the right channel) and Adam Schroeder (in the left channel) in front of a rock-solid veteran quintet.
