    That one Bobby Bryant is pretty good - for funky/EZ big bandy type shit. Same goes for Gerald Wilson "California Soul".

    This one is nice:



    but truth be told, I dig most any Bud Shank and Clare Fischer stuff on Pacific

    I also like these



    Curtis Amy with Bobby Hutcherson on vibes and Frank Stazzeri on piano

    LOL yeah, it's maybe a little too wacky, but we had
    a copy at my old record store and I used to enjoy
    coming back from a 3-bowl lunch, putting it on an

    Billy Larkin & the Delegates must have had a thousand albums on World Pacific (and its' predecessor, Aura), yet are strangely underrated. I don't see why - their shit was tight and grooving, not just out-of-control blowing sessions like Jimmy Smith's records became. Dunno exactly how many World Pacific/Pacific Jazz/Aura albums I got, but I do know that all or most are by Larkin.



    And on the 45 tip: the garagey "I Recommend Her" by the Skunks (like Verve, WPJ released its' share of pop/rock stuff as well).
