CD Reviews

The ultimate "tour-de-force" for trombonist Frank Rosolino.
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Frank Rosolino is known for his days with Stan Kenton and with the Lighthouse ensembles of the 1950's. What has become obscure is the fact that Frank remainded a vital creative virtuoso jazz trombonist right through the decades into the 1970's. These recordings were done in 1973 and 1975 in NOS studios in the Netherlands. They are of uniformly excellent recording quality and show Frank playing at his absolute best. Two tunes ("Violets" and "Corcovado") are set with Frank in front of a full orchestra. Frank was the absolute master of the be-bop trombone. He demonstrates this repeatedly on this album with "All The Things You Are", "I Love You", "Autumn Leaves". The tempos are way up at the top of a jazz trombonist's possible "cooking tempo" and Frank doesn't let up during the extensive soloing ("All The Things. . " is 13 min. and 21 secs, most of which is Frank).So if you love bebop. If you love jazz trombone, you MUST get this album. (Chris Tune - trombonist)"
Frank's great and leaves you wanting more!

"I've been an admirer of Frank Rosolino for years and looked high and low for this CD. Found it at Amazon and am delighted. The thirteen minutes of "All the Things You Are" left me exhuasted. I would have loved to have seen him play it."
A great discovery for the jazz community

"These memories are beyond words. I'm not exaggerating. Frank was the fantastic be bop wizard we all know and Double time really make it big this time discovering some lost tapes from the man in Europe. Here Frank plays in two different settings, common be bop combo and fronting a strings orchestra in a dazzling way. Really this one is among the best, if not the overall best Frank Rosolino you could ever hope to listen. Jazz community should be grateful to Double time for this unexpected present concerning the music of one of the overall best be bop master. I am."
