Product Description:

Personnel: J.J. Johnson (trombone); Lou McGarity, Tommy Mitchell, Paul Faulise (trombone); Hank Jones (piano); Chuck Israels (bass); Walter Perkins (drums).
Recorded in New York, New York on March 12 and April 6, 1963. Includes liner notes by Nat Hentoff.
This is one of the more obscure J.J. Johnson LPs. On six of the ten songs, the great trombonist is joined by four others, while the remaining four tracks (the main reasons to search for this album) feature him in a quartet with pianist Hank Jones, bassist Richard Davis and drummer Walter Perkins. Johnson's writing on the larger group pieces lifts the material, which is all taken from Broadway shows, while his playing on the quartet tracks is up to his usual level. Some of the songs are now forgotten, but "My Favorite Things," "Make Someone Happy" and "Put on a Happy Face" are exceptions. This album has some good music, but it will be very difficult to find. ~ Scott Yanow
