Bob Enevoldsen Quintet Review

by Scott Yanow

This CD reissue brings back an unusual but consistently swinging release from the 1950s Tampa label. Bob Enevoldsen, in one of only three albums that he had as a leader, alternates between valve trombone and tenor and is joined by Marty Paich (tripling on piano, organ, and accordion), vibraphonist Larry Bunker (who switches to drums on a lengthy "Blues"), bassist Red Mitchell, and drummer Don Heath. The music (three basic originals, "Topsy," and "Don't Be That Way") is more conventional than the instrumentation, but is a fine outing for all concerned with plenty of swinging solos.
