Al Cohn Meets Al Porcino. Al Cohn Meets Al Porcino. This was one of Al Cohn's last recordings, a live session with trumpeter Al Porcino's European big band. Cohn's Lester Young-influenced tone had darkened quite a bit through the years and his tough tone was now closer to Illinois Jacquet than to Young. However he still swung in a boppish style and is the main soloist throughout this excellent outing, playing eight of his arrangements plus older charts from Gerry Mulligan and Bill Holman among others

Interview: Al Porcino (Part 1) on JAZZ. FM91 Al Porcino is easily one of jazz’s greatest living trumpet players. We moved to Weehawken for more room and because it was the best place to live in the metro area. There were nice, conservative families there-largely Italian, German and Jewish. The high school had the best teachers in the state.
