“What a wonderful album! In so many ways, this music is so refreshing – excellent arrangements, interesting repertoire, all put together with the care and love that can only come from true dedication and appreciation for the kind of swinging jazz that one doesn’t hear nearly enough nowadays. In the great tradition of the two-trombone groups of yesteryear, Mr. Levy and Mr. Goidel deserve our gratitude for keeping the tradition not only alive, but swinging!” – Loren Schoenberg, Artistic Director of The National Jazz Museum in Harlem
“What better way to honor past masters than to keep their musical spirits alive? SLIDE ATTACK pays homage to the great trombonists J.J. Johnson & Kai Winding AND ALSO to their unique two-trombone jazz quintet, which became one of the most popular jazz groups of the 1950s. Kudos to Howard Levy and Alan Goidel as keepers of the flame!” – Dave Chamberlain, BAND OF BONES
