His Octet and Quintet. Cy Touff was one of the few specialists on the bass trumpet, an instrument that does not sound all that different from a valve trombone. This 1998 reissue CD finds Touff in two different settings. The first four numbers feature an octet (comprised of trumpeters Harry "Sweets" Edison and Conrad Gozzo, Touff, tenor-saxophonist Richie Kamuca, Matt Utal on reeds, pianist Russ Freeman, bassist Leroy Vinnegar and drummer Chuck Flores) performing three Johnny Mandel arrangements and one by Ernie Wilkins ("What Am I Here For").

Cyril James Touff (March 4, 1927, Chicago – January 24, 2003, Evanston, Illinois) was a jazz bass trumpeter. He was one of the few jazz musicians known as a bass trumpeter. He was also associated with West coast jazz even though he spent most of his life in Chicago. He started on piano at age 6 and went on to play xylophone and saxophone before settling on trumpet. He served in the United States Army from 1944 to 1946 and in the military he played trombone.
