LAJAZZ.COM review from Colombo's Jazz Room
" Instrumental stand-out was Barry Mosley on valve trombone. Clearly a student of valve giant Bob Brookmeyer, Mosley's tone was soft, sweet and hypnotic, yet thick with power and drive. This is a man who practices… long and often. "

The amazing trio with the special talents of STEPHAN OBERHOFF on piano and LARRY TUTTLE on Bass.
the WEST COAST JAZZ PROJECT is a group dedicated to the music of Stan Getz and Bob Brookmeyer. Performing with the great DAVE VICTORINO on sax, this jazz is classic, focused on the melodic interplay of the historical cool west coast jazz style.
