      Shank returned in 1974 in the company of the LA Four, a Latin-influenced, cool-bop ensemble that featured Almeida and the great double bassist Ray Brown - sometimes extending this successful group's style into broader recording projects, including the excellent trumpeter and flugelhornist Bobby Shew.
