Producer's note:
This set contains all of Joe Pass's sessions as a leader during 1963 and '64. Because his unissued March 28, 1963 session (G) finds Pass supported by Les McCann's trio, we've expanded the scope to include the guitarist's other two recorded encounters with that trio, both of which were done under Les's leadership and heavily feature Pass.
We taken liberties with the chronology of the sessions in two places so that the "Catch Me!" sessions and the live session can each be contained on a single CD.
Joe Pass's post-1964 albums for the label ("A Sign Of The Times", "The Stones Jazz" and "Simplicity") are commercial ventures in larger musical settings. Their jazz content is minimal and therefore, they are not included here. As with many Pacific Jazz tapes, there are odd edits here and there which were executed on the original master tapes and occasional dropouts.
