Drummer Stan Levey came to epitomize the sound of “cool school” West Coast jazz. He was one of the pioneers of bebop but relocated to the West Coast where he played on thousands of sessions, many for television and film soundtracks, and backed up all the greats.

Stan Levey was one of the leading drummers of his generation who was not only involved in the formative years of bebop, but was accepted as one of its most important drummers, alongside greats like Kenny Clarke and Max Roach. Stan was a major influence in what was called “west coast jazz” or the “cool school”. His crisp, melodic style continued to have more in common with bop than cool, and he inspired every group he ever played in.

As such, he was better known for his session work than for being in the spotlight. Grand Stan marks one of Levey’s few recordings as a bandleader and is notable for the appearance of unknown-at-the-time piano player Sonny Clark who sparkles on this album.
