Trombonist Vic Dickenson was passing through Holland when he was persuaded to record with drummer Ted Easton's fine group. With trumpeter Klaas Wit, Dim Kesber on clarinet and soprano, banjoist Pim Hogervorst and bassist Jacques Kingma getting their spots, this is an exuberant session, available as an LP from the Dutch Riff label. Dickenson has an opportunity to stretch out on six standards (including "Sunday," "I'm Coming Virginia" and "Ole Miss"), plus Easton's "Chops Gone." At 68, the trombonist shows that he was still in his musical prime during the fine mainstream date.
