Once more, Billy May, the brilliant, progressive pioneer sets the trend. With warmth and taste and intelligence--and wry sense of humor.  Case in point: BILL'S BAG. Not a cliche in the carload.  Here the big band interprets modern jazz compositions by the most articulate of the new writers: standards of tomorrow that are happening today.  Over a hundred tunes were considered. Final selection was left to the leader. The chosen twelve represent a marvelous musical cross-section.  Both "Dat Dere" and "Moanin'" are from the prolific pen of pianist Bobby Timmons. The former was a jazz hit for Cannonball Adderley's quintet.  Charlie Parker's "My Little Suede Shoes" gets a sensitive, respectful reading. None of the innate lyricism is lost in the translation.
