Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Trombonist Steve Turre assembles a "dream team" of veteran musicians who have influenced his style: pianist Kenny Barron, bassist Ron Carter and drummer Jimmy Cobb. The 10-track program of jazz standards and original songs includes "Mellow D For R.C.," which Turre composed specifically for Carter. Tenor saxophonist Javon Jackson augments this incredible band perfectly on 4 songs. On a powerful rendition of the bossa nova classic "Corcovado," Turre demonstrates his unique ability to play the conch shell, which he calls "the most ancient of horns," which also features percussionist Cyro Baptista.
