Plus de 50 ans de Trombone Jazz J.J. Johnson

et son Quintet avec Renee Rosnes, Ralph Moore et Billy Drummond
Living legend J.J. Johnson has been playing the trombone for more than 50 years. A member of Jazz at the Philharmonic (first edition) with Nat King Cole and Illinois Jacquet, he was the first to really succeed in coaxing trumpet-like virtuosity out of the trombone. Drawn to the innovations of the bop movement, he collaborated with Charlie Parker, Bud Powell, Sonny Stitt and several other pioneers of the genre.Relatively quiet during the 1960s, Johnson withdrew from the jazz scene to devote himself to film music before making a memorable comeback with the neo-bop wave of the 1980s. The father of the modern jazz trombone is accompanied by a quintet that includes Canadian pianist Renee Rosnes, sax player Ralph Moore and drummer Billy Drummond.
