PACIFIC JAZZ 12” LP – NEW PJ SERIES
PART THREE - PJ-41 / PJ-60

© James A. Harrod, COPYRIGHT PROTECTED; ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.

This group of releases once again include reissues of albums from past numerical series that continued to be streong sellers for the label.  Among these are: the Cy Touff/Richie Kamuca sessions, the John Lewis/Bill Perkins session, the Gerry Mulligan/Chet Baker reunion sessions, the Gerry Mulligan California concert album, Art Pepper and Bill Perkins.

Side one of PJ-43 is titled in error as having Les MCann content, but the tracks are correct titles for the Jazz Crusaders album.  Subsequent labels most likely were corrected.
