When Cy Touff came though Hollywood with Woody Herman’s octet in 1955 it seemed the right time to get everything together and record. Of course, finding the right personnel had been established, and some of the very best musicians were hired. These recordings bring to the fore some exceptional musicians in their prime, both playing and writing/arranging. Another worthy addition to your collection.
