Album Review

The fine swing trombonist George Masso leads a top-notch sextet through seven Cole Porter songs on a spirited live date recorded in Hamburg, Germany. Masso has long been a valuable sideman but he also excels as a leader and is generous in allocating solo space. Trumpeter Lou Colombo (long a legend in the Northeast) is heard on one of his best showcases, tenor saxophonist Harry Allen (who sounds quite close to Stan Getz in spots) swings hard, and the rhythm section (pianist Johnny Varro, bassist Phil Flanigan, and drummer Jake Hanna) sounds as good as they look. Easily recommended to swing, trad, and classic jazz collectors.

Biography

Born: 17 November 1926 in Cranston, RI

Genre: Jazz

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s

An excellent trombonist who records for Arbors, George Masso has had a long if somewhat underrated career. Other than some early gigs (including a 1948 association with Jimmy Dorsey), Masso made his living from teaching in schools up until 1973. However, he always played trombone on the side and, soon after becoming a full-time musician, he toured with the Benny Goodman Sextet (1973). Masso worked with Bobby Hackett, Bobby Rosengarden, and the World's Greatest Jazz Band (the latter starting in 1975)...
