Overview

Two of J.J. Johnson's Columbia albums on one compact disc. The first teams up Johnson with Kai Winding and six other trombonists for an octet that truly swings on numbers like "Night in Tunisia," "Piece for Two Tromboniums," and "The Surrey With a Fringe on Top." The second album, J.J. in Person, captures a live 1958 date with his quintet playing their hearts out on "Laura," "Walkin'," "What Is This Thing Called Love," Bird's "Now's the Time," and Monk's "Misterioso." Johnson is in top form on both albums, and his onstage introductions add a personable touch to the live material. A two-fer that really works.
