Shortly after it was formed in 1953, the Dave Pell Octet won best new combo of the year in polls conducted by America s Daily News and Mirror newspa- pers. Six of its eight members were included in Down Beat magazine s 1953 poll of the top musicians in the country. Pell and his group flipped fans every- where they appeared, specializing in Proms and School Dances, and becom- ing the first name jazz group ever to play for dancing at one of the top Sunset Strip clubs, The Crescendo, and also the Hollywood Palladium. Its jazz was described variously as tasty, sophisticated, subtle, warm, bright, clean, friendly, inventive, happy, and a complete show and concert rolled into one. One successful Octet approach was to have the crowd gather around the bandstand to watch it play a fast jive number featuring the band s excellent soloists. An essential contributing factor in the Octet s success was that Pell hired the West Coast's finest arrangers to write the beguilingly melodic and always attractive, danceable band charts; people of the calibre of Marty Paich, Bill Holman, Shorty Rogers, Jack Montrose, Med Flory, John T. Williams. And it was this canny combination of quality and accessibility that really made the Octet s name and gave the music its enduring flavour. In Dave's own words: "Here's hoping you enjoy our combined dance-and-jazz Campus Hop!"

Includes 10 tracks + the album Jazz Wave
Although saxophonist Med Flory (1926-2014) was associated with the West Coast jazz scene for most of his life, he started his career in New York in 1950, playing with the bands of Claude Thornhill, Art Mooney, Woody Herman and Tommy Tucker. In 1954 he had his own band there and he did his recording debut as a leader for Mercury s jazz label, EmArcy.
While freelancing around New York, he recorded as a sideman with groups led by trumpeter Dick Collins, trombonist Urbie Green, pianist Nat Pierce, but in October 1955, Ray Anthony, who was touring the country with his band, hired him. By February 1956 they had arrived in Los Angeles and Flory decided to settle there, where he wrote arrangements for such combos as Billy Usselton s and Dave Pell s. Eventually he did some fine swinging arrangements for a 14-piece band that drew heavily on Anthony s personnel, recording them for Kapp on March 12, 1956; the highlight of the session was his own Joanie s Jump, a truly swinging piece with a Basie-like opening ensemble.
The following year he assembled a great band featuring Al Porcino s superb lead trumpet work and recording for the Jubilee label, the album Jazz Wave. Their spirit, and the quality of the writing by Flory, Bill Holman, Bob Enevoldsen, Lennie Niehaus and Bill Hood, turned these big band sessions into jazz of the highest order. This compilation closes with two tracks by a saxophone band that Med Flory formed in 1959, called The Sax Maniacs, a concept he would revisit later with his renowned band Supersax .
