Before a racist police regime shut it down, LA's Central Avenue housed a thriving jazz scene throughout the 1940s and '50s. Kicking off with Nat King Cole's trio, this collection does a fine job of highlighting a wide cross section of the acts that held court on Central, from small groups and big bands to jump blues belters to bop experimenters. Very satisfying.
