Go West Young Med. Import. There is a sameness to much of the cuts, but who cares with a band of this stature. The cream of Hollywood musicians, and a few from the other coast, are on display. Count the number of ex-Woody Herman and Stan Kenton alums and you will understand the importance of this album. Mel Lewis is my pick for the best of the lot; only Louis Bellson and Buddy Rich could drive a big band with such power, subtlety, and attention to the score as Mel could. The arrangements are great and the soloists are uniformly marvelous.
