At times sounding indistinguishable soloing side by side, trombonists Kai Winding and J.J. Johnson gained unexpected fame from a series of collaborative efforts cut during the mid-'50s. Sandwiched between their initial Savoy outing and several Columbia releases (and a later reunion session for Impulse), 1955's Nuf Said features the soloists in a buoyant West Coast mood on several medium- to fast-tempo swingers. Winding and Johnson both turn in fluid, tonally rounded statements, while pianist Dick Katz, bassists Milt Hinton and Wendell Marshall, and drummer Al Harewood (using brushes most of the time) provide plush rhythmic support…

J.J. Johnson, along with Bennie Green, was a founding father of bop trombone; Willie Dennis's promising career was cut short by an early death; "Jay and Kai" had successfully collaborated on several projects in the Fifties. But the unique and legendary meeting of these trombone giants, which first appeared on the Debut label and is reissued here, was unprecedented in jazz. Almost as remarkable is the rhythm section on this CD, with John Lewis making a rare appearance outside the Modern Jazz Quartet.

Never released on CD as far as I can tell. Anything with 4 trombone players must be good. Great set of funky, groove oriented jazz, not too unlike Lee Morgan's "The Sidewinder" (which is covered here). Nice version of Herbie's classic "Cantaloupe Island". The title track is a real floor shaker. These tunes were probably played a lot at Hugh Heffner's NY Playboy Club, where Kai was the musical director.

The trombone's unique range and timbre makes it ideally suited to a twin instrument front line, as in the seminal 1950s quintet led by two of its finest exponents, J.J. Johnson and Kai Winding. This time two leading trombonists from these shores, Mark Nightingale and Alistair White, strive to recapture this original concept and they undoubtedly achieve their aim on this superb album.

The third and final Chris Connor recording for Bethlehem, this 1955 release is considered one of her best and was recorded as her star was rising high, with a spectacular studio band consisting of Herbie Mann on flute, J.J. Johnson and Kai Winding on trombones, Ralph Sharon on piano, guitarist Joe Puma, bassist Milt Hinton and drummer Osie Johnson.
