Conrad Gozzo (1922-1964), was a superb lead trumpet of rare force and vigor. On this album, his only one as leader, “The Goz,” as he was
often called, was given more than adequate representation and freedom for all his talents, appearing in front of sixteen piece band, a group
with strings, and a small band. Featured throughout, he plays with engrossing strength and fire, and his full sound epitomises the trumpet
generation of the Forties. The big band sides—as well as the others— are reflective of the idiom in which this legendary trumpeter had his
roots.
