Album Review

This is a curious collection of recordings, mostly standards save two originals, that Red Mitchell made with a wide variety of artists, primarily West Coast, unfortunately unidentified from track to track. Astute listeners will be able to pick the cuts with Barney Kessel or Jim Hall, definitely Ornette Coleman and Don Cherry ("Endless.") There are rare sessions with Lorraine Geller, James Clay, Buddy Collette, Carl Perkins and Claude Williamson included. Red Mitchell completists or first time discoverers of the brilliant bassist might find this hodgepodge compilation inviting, and it is over 70 minutes in length. ~ Michael G. Nastos, Rovi
