Herb Pomeroy sporadically led big bands throughout his career, but this studio date is one of his best, mixing elements of both swing and bop. Many of the musicians won't be all that familiar to younger jazz fans, with trumpeter Bill Berry and alto saxophonist Charlie Mariano being the best-known players present. Pomeroy utilizes a number of different contributors for his charts, although the two jazz standards, "Woody 'n You" and "Lush Life," easily stand out above the other tracks; Berry takes top honors with his solo on both selections. The leader, also a trumpeter, restricts himself to just one solo, on "The Friar and Dr. Goulding." Issued by United Artists and long out of print, consider this LP to be a collectable likely to be found only on auction lists.
Born: 15 April 1930 in Gloucester, MA
Years Active: '50s, '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s
