George Roberts Album - Meet Mr. Roberts

[I found this over on Bongolong Land -]

Here is the long out-of-print "Meet Mr. Roberts" by Mr. Bass Trombone, George Roberts. This rip is from a cassette tape of a vinyl copy given to me by George (my father-in-law) himself. Frank DeVol and his Orchestra accompany Mr. Roberts in some very interesting arrangements.
I hope to bring more of George's remarkable bass trombone music
to this blog in the near future, but for now...
enjoy "Meet Mr. Roberts"!

George Roberts is that guy you always see listed in the personnel for every important group of accompanists for singers like Sinatra and Fitzgerald. How nice it it to discover that he was finally given his own 40 minutes or so of fame. Thanks. DeVol's arrangements are superb.
