The Thad Jones-Mel Lewis Orchestra was little more than a year old when this album was recorded live at the Village Vanguard, which was the band’s Monday night home for every week of its existence. Jones almost single-handedly brought the big band into the modern age with this origanization. Swung hard by Mel Lewis’s drums, the band sailed through the complex charges of Jones and Bob Brookmeyer with panache. Soloists include Brookmeyer, Jones, Richard Williams, Jerome Richardson and Joe Farrell. Three bonus tracks have added to the original LP, which has been remixed and mastered in 24-bit.
