How do you make the trombone cool?
Grachun Monchur III did it while recording for Blue Note, George Chisholm however good a player he may have been, did not!
Bob Brookmeyer was a cool guy, a pianist, composer and arranger as well as a fine valve trombone player.
A worthy addition to Avid’s Essential Collection cool jazz titles we feature Brookmeyer primarily as a trombone player on this excellent re-mastered double CD.
Featured both as leader and sideman between 1954 – 1955 we can hear Bob playing alongside such legends as Bud Shank, Red Mitchell, Larry Butler, Jimmy Rowles Buddy Clark, Mel Lewis and cool school sax man Zoot Sims, hey you don’t get a much cooler name than that!
Forget the haircut on the cover, (believe me that was cool back then) and just listen to the music and maybe change your opinion of what a trombone can do!
