Those are two of my favorite albums and Sol has great solo spots on them both! Then again, Sol does a fantastic job on any recording he participates in.

As great as the "Swinging Eye" album by Si Zentnor is, it is not really a "crime jazz" album. A more appropriate selection by Si Zentner would be "From Russia With Love" which contains FRWL, Charade, The James Bond Theme, Burke's Law, Peter Gunn, M Squad, The Fugitive, Dragnet, Mr. Lucky, The 3rd Man Theme, Bond's "007" Theme and The Man with the Golden Arm. The cover even shouts crime jazz: "More music from Peter Gunn" is also fantastic crime jazz and, much as I like the first album, I sometimes prefer this volume better.

Art Pepper can also be heard on clarinet on the alternate takes of "Walkin'" on the "Art Pepper + 11" CD issue. "Combo" is also one of my favorite albums. I wish Mancini had done more with this line up and have always wondered how Art got involved with this project since he is the only non-Mancini regular on the recording. Whatever the case, I'm glad he was involved because it gives us more of his wonderful clarinet playing. (Maybe John Williams and/or Dick or Ted Nash can supply an answer).

Barry Galbraith is one of my favorite guitarists. One of my favorite tracks (besides all his work with Hal McKusick)is his solo on Gigi Gryce's "Blue Lights" on Coleman Hawkins' Riverside release of "The Hawk Flies High". I just wish Barry got more solo space on that album (since he plays rhythm only on the rest of the session), but he gets off a good solo on that one tune.
