One of the best albums ever cut by trombonist Frank Rosolino – an open-ended quartet session that really lets him do his thing! The tracks are long, with plenty of room for solo space, and Frank’s working with a really great quartet that includes the legendary Sonny Clark on piano – a key force on the west coast scene during his stay in the late 50s – plus Wilfred Middlebrooks on bass, and Stan Levey on drums. Rosolino’s tone is tremendous – a perfect tone, but never too polished – and although Clark doesn’t play with the same sense of fire as on his Blue Note sessions, his presence is still strongly felt on the date. 3 of the album’s tracks are over 7 minutes long – quite rare for a Bethlehem session – and titles include ‘Doxy’, ‘My Delux’, ‘Flamingo’, ‘I May Be Wrong’, and ‘Frieda’.
