Contrasting, powerhouse trombone players on a big-sounding recording with a great rhythm section, paying homage to the trombone legends while extending a “whoa” to young trombonists! Wayne Coniglio has developed a completely unique approach to jazz as a bass trombonist. Although he has appeared on numerous recordings and DVDs, including as a member of the legendary Ray Charles touring band, this is his debut release. One of the best trombonists on the scene today, Scott Whitfield is internationally recognized for his work with many contemporary big bands, including Toshiko Akiyoshi, Johnny Mandel, the late Bob Florence, and the Clare Fischer Big Band, as well as his own Scott Whitfield Jazz Orchestra.
