Styles: Cool, West Coast Jazz, Jazz Instrument, Trumpet Jazz

Cherry-picking highlights from his mid-'50s dates for the Bethlehem label, The Trumpet Artistry of Stu Williamson represents a superb introduction to this underappreciated West Coast jazz great. A remarkably supple, nuanced trumpeter, Williamson captures the absolute essence of the left-coast sound. His solos are expansive yet efficient, speaking volumes in a minimum of phrases.

Brother Claude plays piano on all 14 cuts, while Charlie Mariano, Jimmy Giuffre, and Bill Holman rotate guitar duties. All are in top form, crafting soulful renditions of "Yardbird Suite," "Red Cross," and "Darn That Dream."
