- This compilation album was probably released in 1959. I can’t find much information, but from the attached booklet (within the gatefold sleeve) it becomes clear that the most recent recording is from late Dec. 1958.
- I haven’t checked it all, but it seems the tracks on this album were released earlier on other Philips albums.
- The genres featured on this album range from old-time jazz and dixieland to blues, bop and hard bop.
