Description by OLDIES.com:

J.J. Johnson was the first great trombonist in modern jazz, dominating on his instrument in much the same way as Charlie Parker did on his. His remarkable duets with Kai Winding have never been surpassed, and their first album is reissued here along with Jay Jay's other early Savoy sessions including a memorable first meeting with tenor saxophone giant Sonny Rollins.

Product Description:

Personnel: J.J. Johnson, Kai Winding (trombone); Sonny Rollins (tenor saxophone); Leo Parker (baritone saxophone); Hank Jones, John Lewis (piano); Billy Bauer (guitar); Gene Ramey, Al Lucas, Charles Mingus (bass); Shadow Wilson, Kenny Clarke (drums).
Origins: The Savoy Sessions combines tracks off several of trombonist J.J. Johnson's early-career Savoy label sessions, including J.J. Johnson's Jazz Quintets and Jay and Kai. Given that these albums go in and out of print, this budget compilation seems like an acceptable addition to Johnson's catalog -- though diehards will still want to seek out the original albums. ~ Matt Collar
