    Most of the recordings put out by the German Nagel-Heyer label are pre-bop, ranging from Dixieland to mainstream. This outing stretches the boundaries a little, for trumpeter Randy Sandke (who is joined by tenor saxophonist Harry Allen and a big band led by Jiggs Whigham) pays tribute to a variety of great trumpeters ranging from Louis Armstrong to Woody Shaw ("The Moontrane") and Freddie Hubbard ("Bird Like"). Sandke contributed a pair of originals, arranged all 13 pieces, and helped bring a forgotten (and only partly composed) Bix Beiderbecke composition ("Cloudy") to life. In addition to those mentioned, Sandke pays tribute to Cootie Williams, Roy Eldridge, and Bunny Berigan, among others. He hints at their styles without actually copying them, and has a flexible enough approach to sound comfortable in all of the idioms. Recommended.
