The fifth contains a reissue of trio recordings, where Rob reveals himself even more as multi-instrumentalist. According to Madna, his sources where Count Basie, Oliver Nelson, Gil Evans, and most notably the Thad Jones-Mel Lewis Jazz Orchestra. By the mid-1960s Madna’s reputation as a true musician’s musician was such that Thad Jones asked him to join his orchestra as a pianist and arranger. Rob in all honesty felt that he was not original enough to bring something new to the sound of the Thad Jones-Mel Lewis Jazz Orchestra. Jones, who only worked with the best, protested vehemently, but Madna wouldn’t budge.
