Breaks, Blues & Boogies

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Arwulf Arwulf
Prior to leading several fine recording ensembles during the 1950s, trombonist Vic Dickenson made a name for himself as an expressive, resilient sideman during the 1930s and '40s. Breaks, Blues & Boogies, a 21-track salute released by Topaz Jazz in 1997, concentrates upon his adventures during the years 1941-1946 as he sat in with ensembles led by saxophonists Coleman Hawkins, Benny Carter, Lester Young, and Lem Davis, trumpeter Louis Armstrong, clarinetist Edmond Hall, and pianists James P. Johnson, Albert Ammons, Mary Lou Williams, and Eddie Heywood. This enjoyable swinging compilation has a lot in common with A True Trombone Master, a comparable Vic Dickenson ...

All Music Guide - Arwulf Arwulf
Prior to leading several fine recording ensembles during the 1950s, trombonist Vic Dickenson made a name for himself as an expressive, resilient sideman during the 1930s and '40s.

Johnson, Albert Ammons, Mary Lou Williams, and Eddie Heywood. This enjoyable swinging compilation has a lot in common with A True Trombone Master, a comparable Vic Dickenson sampler put out on EPM Musique's Jazz Archives in 2001. Six titles are duplicated between the two editions, but don't let that scare you away from obtaining both. Reasons for choosing Topaz's portrait of Vic Dickenson in the '40s include larger helpings of Louis Armstrong, James P. Johnson, and Lester Young as well as the two somewhat uncommon Lem Davis recordings, which do not appear on the Jazz Archives collection.
