In 1957's Costa led a quintet that included Phil Woods, Art Farmer, Teddy Kotick, and Paul Motian; their repertoire featured interpretations of "I Didn't Know What Time It Was" and Dave Brubeck's then still fairly new "In Your Own Sweet Way," the latter of which focused on Costa's vibes and Farmer's muted trumpet, with Woods switching to the piano. His next recording in 1958's "Guys and Dolls like Vibes" recording with Bill Evans now reissued as "Bill Evans and Eddie Costa, Complete Quartet" on CD.
