The Trombone Album [Savoy]

Several of the top bop-oriented trombonists are featured on this two-LP set which was put out by Arista in 1980. The great J.J. Johnson teams up with baritonist Leo Parker in a quintet for three numbers, Frank Rosolino jams with a quartet in 1952 (including a version of "Take Me out to the Ballgame") and Frank Foster's arrangements for four trombonists are quite enjoyable. There are also three selections and an alternate take from an all-star session arranged by Billy Ver Planck that features a jubilant Bill Harris on "Playgirl Stroll." This two-fer concludes with a Curtis Fuller date from 1960 that also has solo space for trumpeter Lee Morgan, Yusef Lateef on flute and tenor, and pianist McCoy Tyner. A well-rounded and consistently enjoyable set; most of the recordings have yet to be reissued on CD.
