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.
Born: 17 November 1926 in Cranston, RI
Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s
