This chart begins with an arranged musical conversation. Everyone comes together at the bridge, where dynamic contrasts add to the excitement and intrigue. The feel of this one can be most accurately described as "tippin'."
SOLOS: AABA 32 bar form, A's stay in B-flat and the bridge jumps up a third for the traditional 8-bar II-V turnaround. Very friendly to solo on.
J.J. JOHNSON (b. 1924). J.J. is to trombone what Dizzy is to trumpet and Bird is to alto sax. One of the all-time greats and an influence on generations of trombonists, J.J. was accused of playing valve trombone because of his enormous facility and clarity. J.J. has worked with many of jazz's fellow all-stars, including Count Basie, Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Coleman Hawkins, Bud Powell and Miles Davis. His recordings with Kai Winding are well-known. With compositional gifts equal to those as a performer, J.J. has written standards like Kelo, Lament and Enigma (recorded by Miles Davis, Art Blakey, Milt Jackson, and others) as well as works for big band and full orchestra. In the '70s he wrote film and TV scores, including "Cleopatra Jones," "Barefoot In The Park," "The Mod Squad," and orchestrations for "Shaft." A member of Downbeat's Hall of Fame, J.J. shows no signs of slowing down, and continues to write, record (most recently a big band date on Verve) and tour.
