Overview

A skilled bop guitarist with just a taste of country in his sound, Herb Ellis had a few chances to be a bandleader in the mid- to late '50s and early '60s for Verve Records, and this set combines four of those sessions, 1956's Ellis in Wonderland, 1958's Nothing But the Blues, 1959's Herb Ellis Meets Jimmy Giuffre, and 1960's Thank You, Charlie Christian, on two discs. It makes an excellent introduction to Ellis, and includes such fine players as Giuffre, Roy Eldridge, Stan Getz, Art Pepper, Ray Brown, and Oscar Peterson, among others.
