Bob Enevoldsen (1920-2005) was undoubtedly one of the most versatile performers in the Hollywood jazz scene. But his talent was so multi-faceted that besides the fact that he was a completely schooled instrumentalist, he also developed into an impressive and gifted arranger. Smorgasbord presents Bob Enevoldsen with an interesting line up composed of Marty Paich on accordion and piano, Larry Bunker on vibes, piano and drums, Red Mitchell on bass and piano, Howard Roberts on guitar, Don Heath on drums and Bob, of course, on valve trombone, tenor sax and bass. A variety of doubles among these players afforded an opportunity for orchestral changes in an attempt to set up a different feeling for each piece, said Enevoldsen. Each composition was carefully arranged and rehearsed and the group gets a unique sound with this instrumentation.

__________________________________________________________________________________

"Perhaps Enevoldsen's finest leadership date from the mid-1950s is Smorgasbord. The album demonstrates his versatility and humor as well as his spirited arranging skills. In addition to being a highly swinging session, it's notable for the musicians who were there and the instruments they played. The recording features Enevoldsen on valve trombone and tenor sax; Marty Paich [pictured] on piano, organ and accordion; Larry Bunker on vibes and drums; Howard Roberts on guitar; Red Mitchell on bass and piano; and Don Heath on drums."
