J.J. Johnson

The return of be-bop's premier trombonist after a twenty-year absence is one of the highlights of this year's jazz news. Johnson's smooth, fluidly frantic diction opened the door to the bands of Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie. In the '50's and '60's, he recorded lasting statements with the likes of Miles Davis, Stan Getz, Bud Powell, Sonny Stitt and Sonny Rollins and developed his considerable talents as composer-arranger and band leader. Jazz fans may be aware of his memorable contributions to recordings by Joe Pass, Al Grey, Mik Jackson and Ray Brown during his long withdrawal from public performance, but now the giant of the swing trombone is back on stage, with plenty to say to the younger and broader audience now discovering the joys of great jazz!
