On April 14, 1960, vocalist master King Pleasure (Clarence Beeks) surfaced in a Los Angeles studio with some exceptional musicians (including Teddy Edwards, Harold Land, and Gerald Wiggins) and left us one of his rare sessions. In addition to remakes of his classic “Moody’s Mood” and “Parker’s Mood,” Pleasure exercised his preference for saxophone solos by setting lyrics to the creations of Stan Getz and Illinois Jacquet, then added a couple of his own originals. And don’t miss his liner notes.

with Gerald Wiggins, Matthew Gee, Teddy Edwards, Harold Land, Wilfred Middlebrooks, Earl Palmer
