Yes, I think largely because there aren't a lot of trombonists with the dexterity and timbrel variety to pull this off. To my ear this is a world class performance all round.

There's also the amount of support needed from the drums in a horn trio to fill in the tonal hole left by the absence of piano / guitar. In this take I heard no "hole" - it all sounded complete.
