This Portrait of Shorty is an unfinished portrait, of course, but no less pleasing because of it. Rogers called his big band The Giants, which is entirely appropriate, as he himself was widely recognized as one of the giants of the so–called West Coast school of cool Jazz that was born in the early ’50s and flourished for the next decade and beyond.
