This is one of my all time top 20 traditional jazz combo CD's. Although not well known, Cal Collins ranks with top name jazz guitarists for his unique and recognizeable style, sophisticated chord work in trio settings, and blend of traditonal jazz guitar with blues and texas swing. This CD shows Cal at his best in ballads, medium swing, and uptempo tunes (Tumbling Tumbleweeds is the barn-burner). East of the Sun, West of the Moon is one of my favorites on this CD - although the whole CD is strong mature combo playing at its best. East of the Sun is a medium swinger with a great feel, and strong guitar and flugelhorn solos....but then the whole CD is great...can't say enough positive things about it. Cal's unique chordal improvisations at tempo are worth a listen for advanced players interested in developing Chordal Bebop Lines.
