Rating 5.0 If you love trombone GET THIS! Music Lover: from Valley Village, CA US -- September, 1, 2008

This is arguably the finest album created by trombonist Frank Rosolino. Some view Frank with distaste because of his horrible suicide, but I view his life as that of a fine musician with a serious illness in the form of bi-polar disorder.

Frank was surprised that Roulette did not release this album, but then its production coincided with more mass appeal Rock albums coming out in the early sixties. A truly great album by a jazz trombonist leader of a bop quintet would easily get lost in the shuffle.

This is Frank at his finest, with stunnig work by all in the band (Harold Land, Victor Feldman, Leroy Vinnegar, Stan Levey and Frank).

You also have alternate takes of Chrisdee, Don't Take Your Love From Me, and There is no Greater Love.

In particular I'd like to note the absolutely incredible rendition of Stardust by Frank, at first with little backing and then growing as bass and rhythm enter. It is simply the finest single track I have in all the jazz trombone tracks I have in my collection (and I'm a jazz trombonist. . .you can imagine how many that is!).

In short you need to get this album. The more people buy this, the more we will get fine jazz trombone in the market place.
