Charlie Mariano Boston All-Stars on 10" Audiophile LP!
"Although his first recording work, done as featured soloist with Nat Pierce's band, caused a stir in his native Boston and other eastern areas, it wasn't until the New Sounds From Boston LP that the talents of Charlie Mariano as composer, arranger and alto soloist were introduced to the jazz public at large, all over the country. The response to this album was very warm from critics and fans alike and in answer to this enthusiasm, Prestige is presenting Charlie Mariano once again. Here, however, the group he heads is a quintet as opposed to the octet of the first album. This, plus the fact that the sides were recorded with LP in mind, allowed the soloists more time and greater freedom." - from the original liner notes by Ira Gitler
