In addition to cool jazz numbers, they perform the satirical R&B romp "Big Girl" and with Carlos Vidal on conga the rhythmic "Viva Zapata." In addition, the 1953 version of the band with trumpeter Rolf Ericson, altoist Herb Geller, Cooper, Bud Shank on baritone, pianist Claude Williamson, drummer Max Roach, and Rumsey has a couple of straight-ahead numbers and a couple of Latin ones. Plus, there are three numbers featuring Cooper on oboe and tenor, Bud Shank on flute and alto, trombonist Frank Rosolino, Williamson, Rumsey, and drummer Stan Levey. Although a bit of a hodgepodge collection, the music is consistently satisfying and shows that there was actually a lot of fire in the best West Coast jazz. An excellent introduction to the Lighthouse All-Stars.
