Jazz Trombone Spirituals

Spirituals have long been a favorite of jazz musicians, but rarely have trombonists led the charge. Swedish trombonist Vincent Nilsson gets down 'n dirty for almost a dozen traditional favorites, including "Little David Play on Your Harp," "Down by the Riverside," and "Go Down Moses." In addition to modern jazz technique, Nilsson uses mutes and multi-phonics to add color. And, just when you might wonder what anyone could do differently to "When the Saints Go Marching In," he takes it as at a dirge-like pace that somehow transforms it with great effect. Nilsson should dispel any doubters who still do not believe that it was those 'bones that blew down the walls of Jericho. The fine rhythm section, which includes drummer Ed Thigpen and bassist Mads Vinding, tends to be a bit staid, but the artist makes it up with his enthusiastic, upbeat demeanor. Comparisons are bound to be made to somewhat similar efforts by Gene Ammons and Vic Dickenson, and he acquits himself well. The trombonist brings a suave, modern touch with flourishes indigenous to his instrument. This recording should reach an appreciative crossover audience of trombone enthusiasts and gospel music lovers.
