Superb trombone and band work
on 14 November 2013
I had one of the vinyl albums featured on this two CD compilation when I was a teenager (late 50s) and played it extensively at that time. Urbie Green's trombone playing is superb, as is the band work and also the other soloists. The arrangements of some great standards are delightful, not just as I remembered them on my old vinyl album, but on all of the tracks on both CDs, not heard until now. Full marks to Avid Jazz for this compilation of five albums.
My music teacher plays trombone in a big band, so I bought an extra copy for her to enjoy and aspire to.
