The Dual Role of Bob Brookmeyer

Bob Brookmeyer's got a dual role here — not just working in two different groups, but also on two different instruments as well ! The record's a wonderful early example of the sense of space and timing that instantly made Brookmeyer one of the freshest talents of his generation — beautifully blown notes on valve trombone, and some equally sublime sounds on piano too. Half the record has Bob leading a quartet with the great Jimmy Raney on guitar – on titles that include "Rocky Scotch", Under The Lilacs", and "Potzebrie" — and the other half features a quartet led by Teddy Charles on vibes with Bob on trombone...
