Comments

Equivalent release: Mercury SR-60600 (stereo).

Inside The Groove

a very impressive modern Jazz session by Mr. Valve-trombonist.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

This album by Bob Brookmeyer, very famous as a valve-trombone player, includes well organized and arranged, but hot sessions. With full of impressive trombone ensemble, recorded in the east-coast, but the sound presented here is like in a west-coast style: their aim might resemble to that of Art Farmer - Benny Golson Jazztet.

Anyway, the ensemble is very impressive indeed. Backing-up members like Thad Jones, Joe Newman, Hank Jones, Wynton Kelly, Charlie Persip hit hard, while a fine blend of Brookmeyer & Fuller's trombone ensemble is so rich. Definitely my favourite.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

9 out of 10
