Bob Brookmer, Jimmy Cleveland, Frank Rosolino & all. - The Trombones, Inc.

This long out-of-print LP is a bit of an oddity. Ten trombonists from the East Coast and ten from the West are featured in separate sets with J.J. Johnson contributing the arrangements for the former group (although not playing at all himself) and Marty Paich and Warren Barker splitting the writing duties for The West Coasters. The music is boppish and there is room for solos (including spots for Frank Rehak, Bob Brookmeyer, Benny Green, Jimmy Cleveland, Frank Rosolino and Bob Enevoldsen among others). Nothing that innovative occurs (although the sound of the ensembles is a bit unique); obviously fans of the trombone will find this LP of greatest interest.

Thank for this -- have it on vinyl. Would love a rip of the companion volume, Saxes, Inc.

Also one of Brookmeyer's Gloomy Sunday and Other Bright Moments -- the funniest version imaginable of the title track. Guaranteed to lift you out of the blackest mood.
