This West Coast bop combo featured Barney Kessel on guitar, Ray Brown on bass, and drummer Shelly Mann; the trio derived its Poll Winners moniker from the three musicians' placements in 1956-1957 Down Beat, Metronome, and Playboy readers' polls as best on their respective instruments. Formed in 1957, they recorded four albums before disbanding in 1960, but reunited for a record date in 1975. ~ David Szatmary
