Description
Recorded from 1946 to 1983, these 16 selections feature dozens of major players who shared the bandstand with trombone legend J.J. Johnson over his 50-year career. They include "Laura," "What's New," "Jaylock," "Bags' Groove," "Elysee," "Soft Winds," "Hymn to the Orient," and more.

"The opening cut finds Johnson in the good company of an aggressively boppish Coleman Hawkins, navigating the tricky changes of Thelonious Monk's 'I Mean You.'… The other cuts share … Johnson's large lyrical tone: smooth, stately, serene, always with somewhat of a bluesy undertone. Never overtly dramatic, he could still manage to communicate through his trombone a smolding emotional intensity, as is richly evident in the two duets with guitarist Joe Pass … a longingly romantic version of 'Misty,' and a sharply keening rendition of 'Nature Boy' bringing to mind Coltrane's, not Nat King Cole's, cover…. A worthy monument to a jazz titan."—All About Jazz
