“COOL ELEGANCE - Richard Pulin - TR Productions AW 14003 - Producer: Tony Roma - List 6.98 Trombonist Richard Pulin has performed with the bands of Tommy Dorsey, Woody Herman, Clark Terry, Johnny Long and Tony Pastor, among others, but his approach here, as the title suggests, is easy-going rather than mainstream jazz. His smooth trombone style and the orchestration on some well-known songs by Lennon -McCartney, Bacharach-David and Norman Gimble make this LP suitable for MOR as well as jazz formats. Cash Box/February 18, 1978”

“There are a lot of good jazz discs on the market..great discs, like "Pulin For YOU 2", are rare! To have the likes of the late John Guerin, Bill Watrous, Carl Saunders and Steve Huffsteter,former Horace Silver saxophonist, Doug Webb, and a couple of other "not too shabby" trombonists, Scott Whitfield and Andy Martin, and former tonight show and Steelie Dan stalwart Pete Christlieb?..the list goes on,Pianist Ron Feuer.. drummers Tony Inzalaco and Santo Savino and bassists, Pat Senatore, Dave Stone, and Bill Van Ravensburg. Pulin, brings this recording to life, having penned 10 of the 16 tunes on this disc! Every one of his songs are masterpieces..Listen to "Baby J", and "Little Friend"..Pulin solos on these two and you just don't hear trombone playing like this..One final choice would be "The Bridge"..its impossible to tell where Pulin and Watrous start and stop their solos..buy it! .”

“Great session, Great Musicians author: Tim Taylor-JavaMan There is not much more I could add to the other reviews here. I am profoundly appreciative to hear this album. The packaging was the one thing that threw me. But times being what they are, It is a massively good buy for the jazz received. I think you will join me in toe tapping, finger snapping and a little scatting along with this recording.”

“All-star line up watrous,whitfield,saunders awsome playing get it now author: al king trombonist and brass teacher great cd another excellent find on cdbaby,what a line up im not gonna waffle on ,just go out and buy it .supreme brass playing. my only complaint is why is there no cover for the back of the cd.i e-mailed cd baby about it thinking it had been forgotten in packing, and i was told the cd comes with just a front cover ..... seems odd to me?still never mind the music makes up for it”
