The 2012 double-disc collection Four Classic Albums: Locking Horns/All I Wanna Do Is Swing/The Midgets/Soft Swingin' Jazz brings together four of jazz trumpeter Joe Newman's albums from the 1950s. These are swinging, soulful, and straight-ahead releases that showcase Newman's mainstream and bop-oriented trumpet playing. Featured here are such other stellar musicians as Al Cohn, Frank Wess, Shirley Horn, Hank Jones, Freddie Green, Oscar Pettiford, and others. Ultimately, fans of Newman's midrange melodicism and bluesy group interplay will find much to enjoy on this generous set. ~ Matt Collar
