Description:
This recording introduces trombonist Al Jenkins, a long overlooked hero of the jazz scene and a strong influence on the developing talents of the teen-aged Dan Barrett, to a new generation of listeners. As Dan has written about his first meeting with Al, "His ensemble playing was different than any I had heard up to that time. He literally had his own way of swinging. He found just the right notes to impart the fullest harmony, and delivered them with that utterly relaxed, irresistible swing. I felt I was in the presence greatness.? And, as listeners to this recording will find, the stunning vibrancy of his trombone still possesses the power to accelerate the pulse. -- Producer«s Note
