Most widely held works by Stu Williamson
Duane Tatro's jazz for moderns by Duane Tatro( )

7 editions published between 1956 and 2009 and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From her birth in rural Manitoba, to her journey with her father to southern Indiana, to her years as a wife, mother, and widow, to her old age, Daisy Stone Goodwill struggles to find a place for herself in her own life
Howard Rumsey's Lighthouse All-Stars by Lighthouse All Stars( )

7 editions published between 1955 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All of the recordings by Howard Rumsey's Lighthouse All-Stars are easily recommended to fans of bop and West Coast jazz. This CD reissue is as good as any of their dates, featuring a particularly strong lineup: trumpeter Conte Candoli, either Frank Rosolino or Stu Williamson on trombone, altoist Bud Shank, tenor saxophonist Bob Cooper, pianist Claude Williamson, bassist Rumsey, and drummer Stan Levey. With the exception of three Cooper originals, most of the songs hark back to the swing era (including "Isn't It Romantic," "East of the Sun" and "Dickie's Dream"), but the solos and arrangements were modern for 1955. Recommended. ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide
The gambit, Shelly Manne & his men by Shelly Manne( )

3 editions published between 1958 and 1999 in No Linguistic content and Undetermined and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shelly Manne & his men by Shelly Manne( )

3 editions published in 1998 in Undetermined and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the Manne-Hole, Vol. 2 is the second of two CDs featuring Shelly Manne Quintet in superior form at the legendary Shelly's Manne-Hole club in Hollywood. Trumpeter Conte Candoli (in top form) and the cool-toned tenor Richie Kamuca work together very well, while the contributions of the rhythm section (pianist Russ Freeman, bassist Chuck Berghofer and the drummer/leader) should not be overlooked. Together they perform four standards (highlighted by "On Green Dolphin Street" and "If I Were a Bell") plus their closing theme "A Gem from Tiffany." Both of the volumes are easily recommended. ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide

Lennie Niehaus. the quintets by Lennie Niehaus( )

4 editions published between 1956 and 2008 and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alto saxophonist Lennie Niehaus is better known as the arranger for Clint Eastwood's films, but he has long been familiar to jazz fans as a respected bandleader, composer, arranger, and soloist. This limited-edition audiophile reissue of his first solo recordings (following stints with Stan Kenton and Shorty Rogers) is a stunner. Included is the first 10" LP he recorded with a three-saxophone front line -- in this case, with Jack Montrose (tenor), and Bob Gordon (baritone) -- and other quintet sessions with musicians including pianist Hampton Hawes, and fellow Kentonite Shelly Manne (who was responsible for Niehaus' record deal with Contemporary's Lester Koenig in the first place). The involvement of Kenton bandmembers familiar with one another lends an ease and excitement to the proceedings. These quintet sessions are West Coast jazz at its finest. Melodic tunes give plenty of air to the lyrical yet complex nature of much of the music coming from that region at the time, with no remnants of the cool jazz period. These 1954 sides stomp with swing, color, and style. Bebop is called upon for tempo and pace, while swing and hard bop are referenced as checkpoints. There is a genuine glee in Niehaus' playing on "I Can't Believe You're in Love with Me," when he trades solos with Stu Williamson, while he paces the slightly faster take on "I Remember You" until slipping into one of those long, melodically sophisticated solos of his, just when you expected another chorus. Listening to this, it's hard to believe West Coast jazz ever got a bad rap. This set sounds as fresh today as it did then. ~ Thom Jurek, All Music Guide
