Rating 3.0 "Frank Rosolino Was a Funny Guy...." Music Lover: from Culver City, CA US -- September, 13, 2007

Attempt to make Frank the trombone-playing equivalent of Mose Allison is minor but entertaining. "Don't Bug Me" is a standout track.

Rating 5.0 Turn Me Loose- Frank Rosolino Music Lover: from Hermosa Beach Central Oregon -- August, 21, 2004

This to me is a find, a truly wonderful find. I knew Frank when he played at the Lighthouse in the 50's, where it was against the rules to sing, as they didn't have a license for it, so we would hear him sing while walking down the hall or just a few words when it was certain no one would know about it. He to me was so very special, one of the greatest trombone men around, also one of the kindest, & funniest. I agree with his nepehew, his singing was hurtin, but it brings me joy to hear him with his fun loving wau with words. It brings back happy times. He's my all time favorite! I found you by looking him up, & I'll be telling my online pals at, about your site, lots of Frank fans over there! Do me a favor and send his family my love. I met one of his brothers one afternoon, and he told me all about their fun times as kids. I met Frank when I was 15, and he and the Lighthouse All Stars were my introduction to jazz. What a great beginning!

Rating 4.0 Reviewing My Uncle Frank Music Lover: from Apex NC -- June, 7, 2003

I remember listening to this album in 1961, (remember record albums?) at nine years of age. The entire Rosolino fam, (minus Frank) was over my grandfather and grandmothers house in Detroit. The album cover alone was worth the price! The picture really shows Frank for who he was. An extremely talented musician and a comedic nut.
If you never saw Frank in concert, then you have no idea how incredibly funny he could be. Sometimes his comedy was on a par with his musicianship!
I give this CD a '4.5' because Franks voice wasn't the greatest. But he was a good jazz singer and his scat singing on this CD is probably the only recording of this talent that most people even today cannot match.
Frank's t-bone sound is as always, amazing. His clarity of tone, especially when he zips through notes that you can hardly think fast enough to hear always floors me!
A 4 for singing/a 5 for playing = 4.5
