Frankly I would say that west coast Jazz musicians produced some of the best jazz of the fifties (commonly known as the golden era of Jazz). Apart from Charlie Parker and the pure bebop experience and records of the forties- early fifties, I think that west coast Jazz from the middle-late fifties is the best jazz you can buy. Among the greatest west coast Jazz musicians surely ranks Lennie Niehaus an impressive alto saxophonist with remarkable chops.
He was a great composer-arranger and instrumentalist something very rare in the whole history of Jazz music

It is a swinging, bebop recording that showcases Lennie Niehaus's remarkable talents as arranger and soloist. Using well-written charts, the Niehaus ensemble plays tight harmonies yet have free rein to improvise on the choruses.

The tunes are well chosen standard fare but it's the Niehaus originals that stand out: "Whose Blues", "Prime Rib", "Inside Out",

Make no mistake about this group. They swing and they swing hard.
