I don´t know if this is a legit . It´s a mediocre set of music at a relativly late stage of Dexter´s career. Moment´s Notice can´t match the Wonderful version from "Manhattan Symphony", then follows a rather rambling performance of the too often played "Body and Soul" with a "Chrismas Song" cadenza. 

The only really strong track is the medium tempo blues "Dexter Dig´s In" but I think it´s another line from the early Savoy sessions, they all had titles with referenzes to "Dexter" and maybe this one was "Blow Mr. Dexter". This, actually could have been longer, since it´s really fine played. Than follows a quite rambling ending with some attempts to play "White Chrismas" and "Have Yourself a Merry Chrismas". 

The liner notes say it´s an 80 Minute set, but it runs only 48 minutes. 

Well, it´s a nice Chrismas present I got from my wife, so it´s most welcome…...

Such an superb band. ... I realize that this band is an extension of the piano-less concept that Mulligan worked out in his famous PJ quartet recordings with Chet Baker.  But, compared to those recordings, I'd rather listen to the CJB any day of the week. There's so much more timbral variety here.

How'd Ben Webster get the writer's credit on Body and Soul?

Just noticed an error on the list of musicians on the front cover.  Claude Williamson is listed though he does not appear on this CD.  It should have been Claude's brother, Stu Williamson listed who plays valve trombone on both sessions that are on this CD.

Yes the quartet, the sextet and the CJB.
