Album Review

This 1999 CD reissue brings back an earlier LP (simply titled Vic Dickenson Quintet), adding three previously unheard alternate takes to the original eight-song program. A sideman during most of his career, the great trombonist Dickenson had several opportunities to record as a leader during 1974-76.

Dickenson's sly wit is very much in evidence on this strong set, the trombone/tenor blend is quite appealing and the date is easily recommended to small group swing collectors.
