Over 135 Minutes Of Music.

The Kai Winding J.J. Johnson Quintet brings together probably the two foremost trombonists of the fifties jazz era. The degree of influence that these two men have had on a host of other trombonists who have arisen since is very large. And although Kai and J.J. sometimes sound almost indistinguishable from one another (as you will hear on some of these sides), yet their sounds, styles and conceptions are distinctly individual. As a matter of fact, in some of their musical qualities they are almost at opposite ends of the pole.
