One of Frank Rosolino's first sessions as a bandleader, I Play Trombone was released in 1956 and the title left no doubt about the instrument on which he built his career and legendary reputation. An alumni of both Gene Krupa and Stan Kenton's orchestras, Rosolino moved to Los Angeles in the mid 1950s where he was kept very busy playing on albums by Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Qunicy Jones and Mel Tormé, among many others, but he also kept up a solo recording career.

It took Frank Rosolino's widow Diane many years to find a label willing to release this music, and that is understandable. Frank Rosolino, one of jazz's greatest trombonists, went crazy on November 26, 1978, shooting two of his sons and killing himself. The completely unexpected turn of events from a trombonist who was witty and always seemed in good spirits was a shock to the jazz world, but he had apparently suffered from depression for years. In addition, the music on The Last Recording, recorded less than four months before the horrible ending, features Rosolino using a Multivider on his horn, an electronic device that gave him a sound in three octaves at once.

Features 24 bit remastering and comes with a mini-description. Those only familiar with Frank Rosolino’s trombone work may be surprised to find out that he also dabbled in vocals as well. Rosolino was highly regarded as a trombonist, especially on the West Coast scene, but seldom recorded as a leader; Free For All on the Specialty label is probably his best known work. Turn Me Loose features Rosolino doing double duty as soloist and vocalist, a la Chet Baker, and one could judge solely by the cover that this is an entertaining record by a man who is marching to the beat of a different drummer.

Frank Rosolino, one of the most fluent of the bop trombonists to emerge during the 1950s, is heard really stretching out on this live double-CD, recorded two years before his death. Originally, this was a four-song LP, but in this reissue, the set has been expanded to a 12-song double-CD. Rosolino is joined by Canada's best (guitarist Ed Bickert, bassist Don Thompson, and drummer Terry Clarke) for a variety of veteran jazz standards including "Sweet and Lovely," "I Thought About You," "I Should Care," and Charlie Parker's "Bluebird." Although the tempos are mostly slower, the music has its fiery moments and Rosolino is heard throughout in excellent form.
