PPS-6001: 10 Trombones Like 2 Pianos / Pete Rugolo

[Front Cover] Label Type : blue Mercury type C
Matrix Number : SIDE-A PPS 6001-A-MS1    FF
SIDE-B PPS 6001-B-MS1    FF



Comments

Gatefold cover.

with original Mercury inner sleeve.

A spine-chilling great sound!

Inside The Groove

One of the famous trilogy of “10 fronts and 2 backs” by Pete Rugolo.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

This is the first album of his famous trilogy - the second one is PPS-2016 / PPS-6016 (10 Trumpets And 2 Guitars), and the third one is PPS-2023 / PPS-6023 (10 Saxophones And 2 Basses). As always, Pete Rugolo picked up talented West-Coast studio musicians on the session. A banquet of ten trombones backed up with two pianos and rock-steady swingy rhythm section - simply great and enjoyable!

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

9 out of 10
