Ellis In Wonderland by Herb Ellis
Released: Feb 1956
Label: Verve Records
Maybe because Herb Ellis got so much solo space with Oscar Peterson's trio, the guitarist enjoyed jamming with slightly larger groups on his own dates from the 1950s. Here, Ellis and Peterson are joined by "Sweets" Edison on trumpet and Jimmy Giuffree and Charlie Mariano on reeds. That's not to say Ellis' bop string runs don't dominate -- because they do -- but he lets everyone cook.
