is a strange story. My friend and I first heard this
album when it was on display in Tower Records, Boston.
We loved it so much that we decided to get it, but not
in Tower Records since the price there was so expensive.
We then walked past a used CD store called Disc Diggers
in Davis Square, Boston and we discovered it for a really
cheap price $5.99. But there was only one copy available.
My friend and I decided which one of us should get it.
Finally, my friend bought it because he's a great trombone
fan and he plays the same instrument. After that, I
sort of gave up on this CD because I couldn't find it
that cheap elsewhere. Two years later, I went back to
Boston to visit my friend. We went to the same CD store
and guess what? I saw the same CD for $5.99 and I bought
it. This album really has sentimental value for me.
It not only delivers the best trombone-oriented jazz
music I have ever heard, but also establishes an indestructible
friendship between me and my friend. Music-wise, this
is a great CD. Enjoy!
