2 LPs ON 1 CD Plus 2 BONUS TRACKS
This edition presents two complete original albums by the Four Freshmen, which was one of the finest jazz vocal groups from the 1950s. These outstanding LPs are The "Swingers" (Capitol T1753) and "Four Freshmen and 5 Trumpets" (Capitol T763). While the former features the Freshmen backed by a big band arranged by Bill Holman, the latter showcases them along with star trumpeters, among them Pete Candoli and Mannie Klein, plus Shelly Manne on drums. As a bonus, two rare tunes that complete the sessions from Four Freshmen and 5 Trumpets but were not included on the original LP.
