Tom Stewart

Three dates are used for the Stewart sessions, each with a different lineup. The first six tracks feature pianist Dave McKenna, drummer Al Levitt, and Stewart, Lacy, u0026 Mitchell. Stewart is the dominant soloist, though a novice jazz fan could mistake his trombone for a trombone. However, Lacy’s inventive flights are impressive for such a young musician. This is especially because the soprano was not a popular instrument among jazz musicians in the mid-’50s. Songs include traditional jazz, standards and obscure songs. The highlights include the breezy “Rosetta”, the obscure “My Heart Is a Hobo” and a short “Let’s Get Lost”, which omits McKenna but adds Herbie Mann on tenor sax). Allmusic
