Released:
Label: Criss Cross Jazz
Herwig has chops on his trombone -- and with his composing pen. As a longtime fixture and musical director of the legacy Mingus Big Band, he also knows how to steer an ensemble. Ralph Bowen's tenor work is solid throughout, but note how when a (fine) Herwig solo starts off a tune, Bowen's subsequent improvisation seems kicked into some higher gear (as on the cooking blues of "The Sun Within"). The combination of original tunes (Herwig wrote everything here, aside from the standard "All or Nothing at All") and a great band makes for an album that shouldn't be ignored.
