Presented here is the complete original LP Sensas ! (Philips P-76.160 R), which showcases Bolling as the leader of his big band. The LP [tracks 1-10] appears here on CD for the first time ever, as is also the case with tracks 11-16, taken from rare 7” issues, which complete the 1957-58 dates from which Sensas ! was culled. An additional 1957 date on which Bolling plays extended versions of his own compositions completes this CD of brilliant and rarely heard music!
