Tyree Glenn - Let's Have a Ball

A playfully swinging set from trombonist Tyree Glenn — working here in a nicely offbeat style that also includes a bit of vocals as well ! Glenn's got a great way with the muted trombone — working the end with a wah wah approach that's certainly got its roots in trad jazz, but which also comes across here with a classy swinging 50s style — thanks to strong small combo backing from Tommy Flanagan, Charlie Potter, and Jo Jones. The album should sound hokey, but it doesn't — thanks to a richly expressive style by Glenn, one that's got more than enough soul to get past the gimmicks.
