They Say All Music Guide

Trombonist Slide Hampton, just 30 years old at the time of this octet session in Paris, had already developed into a forward-thinking arranger. Scoring a mix of standards and well-known jazz compositions for a group that included two trombones, two trumpets, tenor sax, baritone sax, bass, and drums, Hampton’s stunning interpretation of “Exodus” (from the film of the same name) still sounds very fresh decades later. The brisk “Star Eyes” might suggest the so-called “cool” players of the 1950s, featuring excellent solos by trumpeter Richard Williams and bassist Butch Warren. Baritone saxophonist Jay Cameron shines in “Confirmation,” while the leader explodes in a powerful rendition of “Moment’s Notice.” Finally reissued as a part of Verve International’s wide-ranging Jazz in Paris series, fans of the trombone will definitely want to acquire this very reasonably priced CD. – Ken Dryden
