While this came out in 1954 on Norman Granz’s Norgran Records, my copy is a Vinyl Me, Please reissue from 2022, via UMG Recordings/Verve. When Granz formed Verve in 1956 he carried over the Norgran (and Clef) catalog. Verve then was sold to MGM in 1960, Polydor in 1972, and then became part of Universal Music Group in 1999.

As you’d expect from VMP Classics, it’s a great reissue, reproducing the original labels, with listening notes by Dean Van Nguyen. Players include Hank Mobley on sax and a young Quincy Jones on piano, as well as a number of Cuban percussionists.
