Description

FRANK ROSOLINO In Copenhagen Frank Rosolino managed to squeeze in trips abroad for specific tours. In the Summer of 1978 he did what was to be his last solo tour in Europe. He came to Copenhagen late in August to play at Slukefter in the Tivoli Gardens which is where the present CD was recorded. He was backed by Thomas Clausen Trio and with no restrictions on length of performances the quartet was allowed to expand the chosen pieces. Blue Daniel was Frank’s best known composition. It has the unusual chorus length of 14 bars. Waltz For Diane is played in waltz time. There is plenty of fast slide work here. How About You? Is nicely relaxed and serves as a prelude to a marathon blues performance using Thelonious Monk’s Straight No Chaser as the theme. There Is No Greater Love uses short, punching phrases during the solo to add impetus. Blue Daniel – How About You? – Straight No Chaser – There Is No Greater Lve – Waltz For Diane 

Personnel

Frank Rosolino - trombone, Thomas Calusen - piano, Bo Stief - bass, Bjarne Rostvold - drums

Recorded August 30, 1978

Reviews

Put out a mere 2 months before his tragic death in 1978, trombonist Frank Rosolino is found here in excellent form. A master of triple tonguing, and various other tightrope walking, Rosolino displays all his talents on this disc that ranges from a boppish “Blue Daniel” to an angular “Straight No Chaser”. jazzweekly.com
