Conte Candoli - Powerhouse Trumpet

One of the best 50s albums from trumpeter Conte Candoli — and that's saying a heck of a lot, given how often Conte recorded during the decade ! The set's got an edge you don't always find on other Candoli sessions — especially some of the large group material – and the group's nice and small, and very tight — with Bill Holman on tenor, Lou Levy on piano, Larry Marable on drums, and Leroy Vinnegar on bass. The quintet cooks wonderfully — with very sharp, soulful solos from both Holman and Candoli — at a level that's got more of the Mode Records bite than some other Bethlehem sides from the west coast at the time. Obviously, the rhythm section's a great one — and really helps the record cook – on titles that include "Full Count", "Four", "Groovin Higher", and "Jazz City Blues".
