Overview

West Coast Brew: Quartet & Quintet Sessions 1955-1958 combines two of tenor saxophonist Brew Moore's early albums for the Fantasy label: 1956's The Brew Moore Quintet and 1958's Brew Moore. A journeyman musician with an itinerant's penchant for living gig to gig, Moore was a Lester Young acolyte and these dates find him in superb cool jazz form. Joining Moore here is a handful of lesser-known musicians, including pianist John Marabuto, trumpeter Dick Mills, tenor saxophonist Harold Wylie, and others. Interestingly, future Peanuts composer pianist Vince Guaraldi is featured on the latter dates in 1958. Although these dates are available in various reissues, it's nice to have them all collected on one disc, given that they all originate from a specific time and place in Moore's early career.
