Frank Rosolino, one of the most fluent of the bop trombonists to emerge during the 1950s, is heard really stretching out on this live double-CD, recorded two years before his death. Originally, this was a four-song LP, but in this reissue, the set has been expanded to a 12-song double-CD. Rosolino is joined by Canada's best (guitarist Ed Bickert, bassist Don Thompson, and drummer Terry Clarke) for a variety of veteran jazz standards including "Sweet and Lovely," "I Thought About You," "I Should Care," and Charlie Parker's "Bluebird." Although the tempos are mostly slower, the music has its fiery moments and Rosolino is heard throughout in excellent form.
Rosolino at his best
A bit traditional in the sense that he is playing mostly well known standards, however, Rosolino's improvisational ability and his technical mastery of the horn make this material very interesting to listen to. Though each of the players brings something completely different to the table, the group dyanmic maintains itself very well. A must have album if you're a trombonist, and a thouroughly solid album for any other listener.
Born: August 20, 1926 in Detroit, MI
