Yupiteru – YJ25-7026
A session recorded on the 29 and 30 of March 1979 in Los Angeles, CA.
Although this release may be labeled as “bop” in style, it is more correctly “post bop” because of its release date.
Featuring Pete Jolly on piano, Chuck Berghofer on bass and, naturally, Shelly Manne on drums. A real good example of what I would call, “West Coast”, a style that carried on well into the 1980’s. You can almost hear the surf washing on the sand in “What Is This Thing Called Love”.
A must have in any Shelly Manne collection.
