In addition to being a top-notch trombonist since at least the 1980s, Dan Barrett always has the knack for quickly coming up with logical arrangements for combos in jam session settings.

In Dec. 2011, he was in France, heading the International Jazz Quintet, a group also featuring tenor-saxophonist Frank Roberscheuten, guitarist Dave Blenkhorn, bassist Sebastien Giardot, and drummer Guillaume Mouaux.

Although this was a short-lived group, listening to their version of the late 1920s song “I May Be Wrong (But I Think You’re Wonderful),” one would think that this band had been together quite awhile; despite the very different instrumentation, the opening and closing ensembles recall the John Kirby Sextet.
