Album Notes
This CD contains two original albums, Holiday For Trombones and One Of Those Songs, recorded in
1967-68 by a studio recording group called “Trombones Unlimited.” That is, we were hired to go into a
studio and read this music and record it live. There were some vocal and flute overdubs later, but everything
we did was live. “We” at this time were Frank Rosolino and Mike Barone on trombones, and Bobby
Knight on bass trombone.We never had a recording contract––we just played for scale and went home.
There were some very good jazz players and studio players on these dates. A few that I can remember were Nick Ceroli (drums), Carol Kaye (bass),
Julius Wechter, Victor Feldman, Larry Bunker and Emile Richards (percussion and mallets), John Pisano, Tommy Tedesco, Dennis Budimir (guitars),
Mike Melvoin (piano), Jim Horn (flute and baritone sax), and others I can’t recall. – Mike Barone
Frank Rosolino, who died in 1978, will always be remembered and respected throughout the contemporary jazz world for his mastery of the trombone,
his uncanny ability to fit and work successfully with a wide range of musical ideas, and perhaps last but not entirely forgotten, his wit and
capacity for comic entertainment. His career started in earnest in early 1946 playing with a great variety of bands…Bob Chester, Glen Gray, Gene
Krupa, Tony Pastor, Herbie Fields, Georgie Auld, and with his own groups in Detroit . His first major break came when he was offered the jazz chair
with the great Stan Kenton Band in 1952 and he was one of the featured soloists with Kenton through late 1954. Earlier, he had joined and recorded
with the Howard Rumsey Lighthouse All Stars. Rosolino had played with Donn Trenner's House Band on the Steve Allen TV show, Conti Condoli
in 1973 and 1975, Quincy Jones and Benny Carter, and he was the featured soloist on a tour with Supersax. Rosolino had recorded with Terry
Gibbs, Zoot Sims, Dexter Gorden, Don Menza and others too numerous to list in this short biography.
Mike Barone, composer, arranger, trombonist from 1967-92 wrote over 300 compositions and arrangements for Doc Severinsen and the Tonight
Show Band. He had more original music performed on The Tonight Show during that period then anyone else, including two ending themes,
“Peachy” and “Superslick.” which were used for years. Mike came to LA in 1959 where he began writing and playing with the bands of Sy Zenter,
Louie Bellson, Gerald Wilson, and Terry Gibbs. In 1962 he recorded with Lalo Schifrin and the Dizzy Gillespie quintet, and later played with them
at the Monterey Jazz Festival. His many writing and playing credits include: Quincy Jones, Hank Mancini, John Williams, Bill Conti, Frank Rosolino,
Maynard Ferguson, Ernie Watts, Dave Grusin and Carl Saunders to name a few. Mike has written for the Academy Awards since 1987 and more
recently in 2000, 01, 03, and 05. Mike also has three charts (2 originals) on a 2006 Bud Shank Big Band CD. Mike has released 3 CDs with his
current big band: Mike Barone Big Band Live in 2005, Metropole (2006) and By Request (2007).

Rosolino /Barone Magic! Austin Powers lives in this fabulous music
Some very rare Frank Rosolino & Mike Barone ''Trombones Unlimited'' recordings from the late 60's now available on cd which otherwise has always been confined to the 2nd hand record store until now .Some fantastic and classic melodies played as trombone duets also with Bobby Knight bassbone Carol Kaye bass. Julius Wechter,Victor Feldman,Larry Bunker,and Emil Richards ..Great stuff perfect for driving in the car.Check it out and treat yourself to some Austin Powers type Groovy trombone! ''I love it baby''

Dennis Wymer

Frank Rosolino is awesome. His untimely death was a tragedy. His playing lives forever.

Mark Choate

Great CD! I bought these two same LPs when I was in high school in the 60\'s and loved them both then and I was just delighted to find that they were finally available on CD now. I only wish that the cut, \"Green Tamborine\" from the original recording was on the CD--it was the only one missing but all in all I am pleased to have these recordings again.
