J.J.'s Broadway is the 1963 album by J.J. Johnson. Originally released by Verve, this CD was remastered by Bob Irwin for the Verve Music Group and released on 9 September, 2003.
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.

Reissue with latest DSD remastering. Comes with liner notes. A great small group session from trombonist JJ Johnson – a record that sets him up with a crack rhythm section, then really lets him open up on his solos! The approach is a great change from some of the more tightly arranged Johnson albums for Columbia – and is a great reminder of the sharp, soulful hardbop style that first made folks take note of JJ during his early work for Blue Note and Prestige Records! The set cooks nicely – thanks to piano from Tommy Flanagan, bass from Paul Chambers, and drums from Max Roach – and titles include "Kev", "100 Proof", and "What's New". Including the two part "Blue Trombone," and shows listeners why he is still considered one of the greatest jazz trombonists of all time.

Among the many tributes paid to Bird’s memory was a tour by a sextet including musicians closely related to Parker. The leaders were Sonny Stitt, a saxophonist of enormous talent and brilliant technique, and trombonist J.J. Johnson, one of the fathers of bebop. Apart from their associations with Parker, all of the musicians on this sextet were well known stars in their own right, and it is refreshing to see more footage of rarely filmed jazzmen like Johnson, Stitt and Howard McGhee.

This release contains the complete LP Plays Mack the Knife, appearing here on CD for the first time ever, it presents Johnson fronting a quartet that includes Andre Previn on piano, Red Mitchell on bass and Frank Capp on drums playing songs by the celebrated Kurt Weill. As a bonus, we have added another complete LP by Johnson, Trombone and Voices, which also appears here on CD for the first time ever. Although we are aware that the concept and arrangements on this bonus album might seem outdated, we believe that J. J.'s solos clearly merit it being reissued.

Trombonist J.J. Johnson's 1960 sextet is featured on this Columbia CD. Most notable among the sidemen is a rather young trumpeter named Freddie Hubbard on one of his first sessions; also helping out are tenor saxophonist Clifford Jordan, pianist Cedar Walton, bassist Arthur Harper and drummer Albert "Tootie" Heath. Seven of the compositions (which are joined by Dizzy Gillespie's "Blue 'N' Boogie") are Johnson's and, although none caught on, "Mohawk," "In Walked Horace" and "Fatback" (which is heard in two versions) are all fairly memorable.

Bennie Green was one of the few trombonists of the 1950s who played in a style not influenced by J.J. Johnson (Bill Harris was another). His witty sound and full tone looked backwards to the swing era yet was open to the influence of R&B. After playing locally in Chicago, he was with the Earl Hines Orchestra during 1942-1948 (except for two years in the military). Green gained some fame for his work with Charlie Ventura (1948-1950) before joining Earl Hines' small group (1951-1953). He then led his own group throughout the 1950s and '60s, using such sidemen as Cliff Smalls, Charlie Rouse, Eric Dixon, Paul Chambers, Louis Hayes, Sonny Clark, Gildo Mahones, and Jimmy Forrest.

Pittsburgh's J.J. Burner mix country-rock and blues rock influences into a melting pot of cooking stew! "Roll On" showcases the last recorded performance of Pittsburgh guitar legend Warren King (Diamond Reo, the Silencers) on blazing tracks like "Ain't Nobody Don't Like Money," "Tender Touch" and "Why." The band are currently tearing up the rust belt in the USA with sure-fire renditions of songs from this debut album. Produced by fabled Steel City musician Norman Nardini. This band boils the Pittsburgh blues rock sound down into a tight package of pure smoke. R.I.P.Warren King!– by cdUniverse

For the first time in more than 3 decades, this reclusive artist lets a camera into his life in this amazing opportunity to meet the mysterious man behind the guitar. In series of candid interviews, Cale describes his childhood and his wild years in psychedelic California. Cale also shares his insights about his influences, songwriting, success, life on the stage and on the road - all interlaced with outstanding live performances, archival footage, interviews with band members and friends, and awe-inspiring images of American landscapes. Eric Clapton appears in some performance footage.
