Sanctified Shells Review

by Scott Yanow

Steve Turre's trombone playing takes a back seat to his work with shells on this CD. Joined by Robin Eubanks and Reynaldo Jorge on additional shells, Turre wrote or co-wrote all ten selections. There is an OK guest appearance by Dizzy Gillespie on "Toreador" and worthy spots for trumpeter Charlie Sepulveda, trombonist Clifton Anderson, and several percussionists, along with fine contributions from bassist Andy Gonzalez and drummer Herlin Riley.
