Trombone and clarinet are an unusual front line. However, the concept is not new. This exact instrumentation prevailed in the Benny Goodman Sextet of the early 1940’s. Both, Ken and George worked with the Benny Goodman Sextet at various times. This CD is their offering in a similar context.
George Masso describes this CD as his best live recording ever.
"George Masso is one of the finest trombone players we know and is often overlooked as one of the premier players going." Jersey Jazz
"…very enjoyable fifty minutes … played with such technical prowess and invention that it is impossible not to be charmed." Jazz Review
The noted New York Times music critic John S. Wilson called Ken Peplowski "a clarinetist with a Benny Goodman tone and a Buddy DeFranco style."
