Overview

Unlike the first four volumes of this series, which included three or four selections previously released plus a "new" alternate take, the final CD of the extensive documentation of the Shelly Manne Quintet's stint at the Black Hawk club consists entirely of previously unreleased material. Fortunately, the performances by trumpeter Joe Gordon, tenor saxophonist Richie Kamuca, pianist Russ Freeman, bassist Monty Budwig, and the drummer/leader are the same high level as on the more familiar material. They perform obscure songs by Horace Silver (has anyone else ever recorded his "How Deep Are the Roots?") and Victor Feldman in addition to a trio feature on "Wonder Why," the ballad "This Is Always," and a new version of the band's theme song, "A Gem From Tiffany."

Clean,excellent playing from this quintet. This kind of playing always makes me wish I was born earlier...so I could have listened live. But as I'm listeneing, I can imagine being at the Black Hawk. This is my first purchase of any Shelly Manne, and I'm immediately going to purchase the other four volumes of this collection from the '59 Black Hawk recordings. Highly recommended for any jazz library
