Previously unreleased compilation from the Jazz Workshop catalogue, a Motown Jazz oriented subsidiary founded by Berry Gordy Jr. In 1962. The label was intended to release hi-quality jazz singles with a distinctive Pop flavor. Here are five different groupings featuring heavyweights such as Thad Jones, Frank Foster, Sonny Payne, Frank Wess, Cecil McBee, Kirk Lightsey as well as two original Funk Brothers: guitarist Joe Messina and pianist Johnny Griffith.

No matter if in blues, soul, funk or jazz, Detroit bears one of the deepest black music traditions in America. Now if you want to get through the motor city jazz side this is the right place to start.
