Editorial Reviews

Saxophonist Al Cohn and trombonist Bob Brookmeyer are at least as well respected for their arranging skills as they are for their instrumental ones. They each contributed three compositions and six arrangements to this acclaimed 1956 recording: Good Spirits; So Far So Good; Winter; I Should Care; Bunny Hunch; S-H-I-N-E; Back to Back , and more. And on piano, Mose Allison!

4.0 out of 5 stars Who's Al Cohn? I Sure Know Now! December 15, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Hats off to Verve for continually culling their vast vaults and re-releasing long out-of-print classic jazz albums. Recently this effort has included a bunch of old Coral Records LPs, including this one by tenor saxophonist Al Cohn. "The Al Cohn Quintet" is only the second album by the jazzman I have purchased, with the first being "You N' Me" with Zoot Sims. However, I'm quite familiar with the rest of the group -- the great valve trombonist Bob Brookmeyer, pianist Mose Allison, bassist Teddy Kotick and drummer Nick Stabulas. This December 1956 session features 12 songs all arranged by either Cohn or Brookmeyer, six of them standards and three each penned by the frontmen. All but one song is under 4 minutes (and it logs in at only 4:20) so there isn't a lot of stretching out during the solos. But the arrangements are so tight and the solos so concise and well articulated that the swinging never suffers. Overall, it is an enjoyable CD, but be aware this is a limited edition title and will only be available until March 2008.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the finest August 23, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I wore out my LP copy of this disc and hadn't played it for over 30 years. Both Brookmeyer and Cohn are at their best. It's nice
to hear the jazz vocalist, Mose Allison play so much piano. And there's Teddy Kotick, bass and Nick Stabulas, drums. This is one
of the finest recordings of its day.

5.0 out of 5 stars AL & BOB December 21, 2012
By Jerlaw
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I really love this album. Al Cohn plays a mean tenor & he's joined by Bob
Brookmeyer. So it's the quintet + Brookmeyer. If you are juidged by the company you keep, this mis very good company indeed.

I may be mistaken but Al Cohn was a member of Woody Herman's herd, the sax section included Stan Getz. Don't quote me on that.

The Sax & trombone really have a great sound when they play in unison. I might mention that for an album which was made in mono LP so many years ago, the sound is amazing.

Al & Bob steal the show here. The drummer & bass do a great job, but nothing special. They don't have to be. However the pianist takes some great solos.

You'll love such tunes as "Lady is a Tramp;" Ill Wind" "S.H.I.N.E.;" & "I should care."

Ala in all, a great studio recording that everyone should have in their jazz collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Cool Swingness of Al Cohn quintet... April 29, 2009
Format:Audio CD
The beauty of this music comes both from the tight interplay of the musicians and from their individual excellence; occasional jazz standards ("The Lady is a Tramp", "Ill Wind", "Shine") surely helps, but the ellegant swinging lightness of this quintet shines throughout the cd...

Although Bob Brookmeyer's valve trombone is by no means sturdy or expressive as some less cool trombones, within the strict limits of the mood set by this album it contrasts Cohn's sound beautifully, making them sound richer and more diverse than one would expect from listening to their respective individual soloing... I LIKE THIS!
