Sorrowfully, too late
Richard Ruark | Orlando FL | 07/03/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Randy Brooks was a first class virtuoso, with technique almost unrivalled. Not only was he posessed of a gorgeous tone, ;his jazz and ballad work were faultless. Listen to his jazz solos, and you'll quickly perceive that he knew exactly where he was going, and had the technique to support it.With excellent arrangements by John Benson Brooks, He had a very tight, very swinging band. Soloists were first class (Eddie Caine, Harry Brooks, Stan Getz, and the inimitable Shorty Allen).As a lead trumpeter, he had few peers. Sonny Dunham told me in the late '80's that Randy was his favorite trumpeter."
