You can't beat these "bones"

"If you like Jazz, you have to love Urbie Green and Buster Cooper. What a combination of trombone players. The duet on "Will You Be Mine" will make your spine tingle and your imagination soar. It's interesting to note that Cooper turned Duke Ellington down twice, before agreeing to play with his band, and then remained with him for nearly ten years. As for Thurman (Urbie)Green, I first heard him play at a jazz festival in Central Illinois several years ago. The crowd was mesmerized -- not believing that such smooth, sweet notes were being emitted from any instrument with such ease, as though he were embracing the music itself. That same enchanting mood is reflected on this CD. In "Ramblin", you don't simply hear the music. You feel it. And in "The Work Song", as with all the others, the changes are phenomenally finessed The improvisations performed by both musicians and their ability to express it is a tribute to the world of jazz and and more than a delight to listen to -- a work of art."
