Description by OLDIES.com:

Bob Brookmeyer first started out as a pianist, but gained fame as a trombonist in the Gerry Mulligan quartet. A top arranger as well, he often switched back to piano and could hold his own with jazz's best. On this disc you'll also hear a set from Jimmy Giuffre. Since he began his career playing in the '40s, Giuffre has made a career out of creating surprising music.
