Stan Getz was 28 years old when he recorded, West Coast Jazz in 1955, and he was already an accomplished performer, having made a string of albums. Getz recorded the album in California, where he was filming for The Benny Goodman Story, and appearing for a week at the nightclub Zardi's Jazzland. The musicians that accompanied him at Zardi's play on the album and they are, Conte Candoli – trumpet, Lou Levy – piano, Leroy Vinnegar - double bass and drummer, Shelly Manne.

The title of the album is an in-joke as none of the musicians on the album were associated with the West Coast jazz style.

In their contemporary review of the album Billboard said, "Name power, talent, and a display worthy cover tag this as a leader. The stuff is modern, interesting, and it swings powerfully when its supposed to. For musicians and for fans, this one is tops. – Press Release
