Personnel: J.J. Johnson (trombone); Ralph Moore (saxophone); Stanley Cowell (piano); Rufus Reid (bass); Victor Lewis (drums).
The second of two CDs coming from the same engagement at the Village Vanguard (the first was Quintergy), this set features trombonist J.J. Johnson's quintet with Ralph Moore on tenor and soprano, pianist Stanley Cowell, bassist Rufus Reid and drummer Victor Lewis jamming on nine standards, plus the leader's "Shortcake." Johnson is in top form, particularly on "My Funny Valentine," "Just Friends," "Misterioso" and "Autumn Leaves." A good example of the ageless trombonist's talents. ~ Scott Yanow
