Contemporary Records ‎– M 3579

USA

LP, Album, Mono

A really cool collection of live recordings featuring Shelly Manne (drums), Joe Gordon (trumpet), Richie Kamuca (tenor saxophone), Monty Budwig (bass) and Victor Feldman (piano). Very “west coast”, even if all the players come from places other than the West Coast.

Five volumes of records from the live session recordings made in September 1959 at the Black Hawk club in San Francisco were released. Volumes 1 to 4 were released in 1960 on vinyl in both Stereo and Mono. The artwork shown on this page is from the third volume. A fifth volume was released, apparently on CD in 1991.

Some interesting reading on the sessions can be found on the post, Shelly Manne at the Black Hawk, written by Marc Meyers.
