hmmm? well, this is a dazzling album, if not simply for the fact that it is a series of LIVE recordings (ALIVE). that such a collection of stylistically different and mutually appreciative trombonists can be found on it is only one reason to check it out. listen to stardust and you'll know what i'm saying- listen to the sounds of the club in the background, and the honestly of the playing....

This CD should be titled "The Art of Murdering Nice
Songs." Listen to "Stardust"(is it really Stardust?)
and you'll see what I mean. Beboppers should see a
shrink instead of bothering us with their nervous
ticks(or licks?).

This album is for Bone Players ! Feb. 20 2005
By D. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Ignore the previous reviewer. If you look at all that guy's reviews they are all one star and completely negative. At least he is consistant and I hope he cheers up soon.

Here is a nice album recorded live at a session with Mingus bringing together 4 of the great modern trombonists. If ya don't like bebop don't buy it. Such a dichotomy of approaches to playing the instrument. A feast for jazz trombonists and a chance to hear these guys stretch out !

Trombones Galore July 22 2011
By Jerlaw - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
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!

How to play Jazz Trombone in 8 steps. May 17 2005
By jkt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you're a trombone player or just a person that appreciates jazz music you can't pass this album up. These guys were and still are some of the greatest players. It's so great to hear each of them develop their ideas of the course of the songs. They each feature a different technique, each pleasant and interesting in their own way. I'm partial to J.J. b/c his stuff just amazes me. His technique is incredible and his solo work is a pleasure to listen to. But you have to give up to all of these guys.

Very Nice! April 2 2013

I baught this for my son who just started playing the trombone this year. We heard at a seminar that it might be useful to him to hear some professional players. I wasn't sure what I was looking for and a friend suggested JJ - my 13 year old son loves this CD.

Trombone Jazz Feb. 16 2013

It was on time. It was well performed and a good recording. What else is to be said about a Kai Winding piece?
