AllMusic Review by

Four different trombonists along with a good rhythm section (pianist Horace Parlan, bassist Mads Vinding and drummer Allan Ganley) team up for a variety of originals, "Blue and Sentimental" and a medley of blues themes. While Kai Winding, Bill Watrous and Jiggs Whigham are easily complementary, the avant-gardist Albert Mangelsdorff is the wild card on this stimulating session, keeping the music from being too comfortable or predictable. The 'bones are heard interacting together as a quartet and in trios and duets. The results are somewhat unique; pity that this LP has been out of print for quite awhile.
