Originally released on two 10-inch vinyl discs in early 1955, these recordings spotlight some of the best from Blue Note's West Coast jazz roster of the day, as the title implies, recorded in Los Angeles and featuring prominent jazz musicians from both coasts such as Harry "Sweets" Edison, Stan Levey, Conte Candoli and Marty Paich. The "blindfold test" refers to the fact that the first volume was originally issued with no credits, presenting a challenge to jazz fans to identify the players, only revealed on the second album. This note appeared on the original record jacket of the first volume: "We're curious to see which of Blue Note's customers, long noted for their astute jazz tastes and discernment, can come up with a complete or at least partially correct answer."
