Prior to the "Jazztet," Benny and Art collaborated on two superb albums: Golson's "New York Scene" (1957), and Farmer's "Modern Art" (1958).

"Wonder Why" remains my favorite all-time Jazztet track. Man, I wish I could've heard Art Farmer on trumpet back in the day.

Thanks Marc, you came up with useful insight once again : next time my Lady complains that I spend too much on jazz records, I’ll tell her that I “need the bulk of the household’s income to sustain my focus and participation” in our partnership…

Benny Golson is probably my favorite underated / semi-forgotten tenor sax player. I really like the way he plays, especially from this period.
