First of all, please ignore the one star4 review by that idiot.All his reviews are the same. In fact I don't think he even buys the CDs he "reviews." He just has nothing better to do with his time.
In the 50s, J.J. Johnson & Kai Winding were an institution in bebop. In this outing, they add two more Trombones with the great John Lewis on piano; Charles Mingus on bass of course, & Arthur Taylor on Drums.
J.J. & Kai played together as a duo, & were one of the reasons I got into jazz They were known simply as Jay & Kay.I have a lot of their albums but was surprised to hear only one on it I've heard before: "Now's The Time", a simple 12 bar blues written by the great Charlie Parker (Bird).
The last tune on the CD is "Chazzanova", not a bossa nova tune, but a gorgeous ballad that anyone could appreciate. It was written by Mingus.
Ow! was written by Diz & has a lot of up tempo interplay, point-counterpont, & shows a perfect blending of all four Trombones. You'll love this CD!
