Very good show and a very fitting tribute to J. J. Johnson. I found it interesting, however, that, for a tribute to a famous trombonist, the 'bone section was not as strong as the trumpets!

Description

The LJO will perform its homage to J.J. Johnson, one of the leading jazz musicians of the post-swing era. Regarded as one of the first trombonists to embrace bebop music, J.J. Johnson was a key player and innovator in this definitive style. Collaborating with jazz greats including Dizzy and Miles, Johnson blazed a path for himself in the bebop movement doing for the trombone what Charlie Parker did for the saxophone.
