Robert Edward "Bob" Brookmeyer (December 19, 1929 – December 15, 2011) was an American jazz valve trombonist, pianist, arranger, and composer. Born in Kansas City, Missouri, Brookmeyer first gained widespread public attention as a member of Gerry Mulligan's quartet from 1954 to 1957. He later worked with Jimmy Giuffre, before rejoining Mulligan's Concert Jazz Band. He garnered 8 Grammy Award nominations during his lifetime.
Bob Brookmeyer Plays Bob Brookmeyer and Some Others (also released as The Modernity of Bob Brookmeyer) is an album by jazz trombonist and pianist Bob Brookmeyer recorded in early 1955 for the Clef label.
Accompanied by the great pianist Jimmy Rowles, bassist Buddy Clark, and drummer Mel Lewis, Brookmeyer's fluid, sassy solos carry the day in the four standards and his three creative originals. Rowles seems a tad reserved compared to his own dates as a leader, though he still swings. Almost impossible to track down, this rare LP will likely turn up only in auction lists and the occasional estate sale of a serious jazz collector.
