This recording spans a little over twelve years, with a compilation of two different sessions, one in 1984 and one in 1996. Bill Allred, one of the world’s finest trombonists, has assembled two amazing bands of different musicians and instrumentation, and somehow, with his unique talents as a leader and musician, he makes it all fit together seamlessly. His swinging, authoritative trombone style is the gravy that makes this meal a feast for anybody’s ears.
Supported by such greats as Milt Hinton, Eddie Higgins, Bucky Pizzarelli, and Butch Miles, Bill plays some unique and exciting choruses on standards and swing tunes that will delight you. These timeless songs and wonderful musicians will make this album a “regular” in your listening library.
