Album Review

It had long been a dream for trombonist George Masso to record with some of his long-time friends from the New England area. This 1997 CD gave him an opportunity to realize his goal, heading a sextet also including trumpeter Lou Colombo (a strong underrated player), Dick Johnson on alto and clarinet, the great pianist Dave McKenna, bassist Marshall Wood and drummer Artie Cabral. The music they perform is essentially mainstream swing with a little bossa nova ("Triste") tossed in. In addition to some standards, this CD is noteworthy for the inclusion of a few obscurities and lesser-known material including "Remind Me," Masso's "Whenever That Gal Comes Around" and the title cut. The leader provided the arrangements while Colombo contributed many of the sparks. A fine outing.

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)...
