This edition contains Joe Pass’ earliest recordings as a leader. It including his complete original long unavailable 1962 LP Sounds of Synanon (Pacific Jazz PJ48), It presents an unusual instrumental combination with baritone horn and bongos in a program of originals by Pass and other members of the band. All of the musicians there, including Pass himself, were patients recuperating at the Synanon Drug Center in California at that time, hence the title of the album.
In addition to the seven songs on the original LP, this release also boasts a rarely heard blues that completes the session, as well as a selection of Pass’ earliest quartet dates under his own name.
