Kai Winding's Incredible Trombones

I grew up in the 1950's-60's as a serious student of the trombone and often performed semi-professionally. I am particularly fortunate because that was also the peak of Kai Winding's career. He was always my idol with his excellent technique combined with a warm, mellow sound. J.J. Johnson and Slide Hampton were also excellent trombonists but Kai Winding's unique sound always had a special appeal to me. This is the first time I have heard this particular album and I found it every bit as enjoyable as I hoped. The superb Kai Winding sound and style were nicely captured on this particular download. A computer novice, this was one of my first downloads from the iTunes Store and I was impressed with the quality of the results... even when played through my primary audio system. (KEF speakers were surely made for Winding's beautiful tone!) Whether or not you are already a trombone or Kai Winding enthusiast I would encourage you to buy this album and enjoy a unique sound that has lost none of its appeal after almost half a century. I sincerely hope you enjoy this album as much as I have. Dr. R. Jackson, Princeton, NJ
