Considered to be one of the pioneers of the French Horn, John Graas is one of the emblematic figures of the West Coast style and one of the representatives least known by current enthusiasts.
Graas, who died at the age of 37, had a brief but intense jazz career, with recordings that have become unwithering examples of the jazz of the fifties.
The John Graas Project is conceived as a homage-tribute to this great jazzman on the eightieth anniversary of his birth. It includes a collection of 13 LPs never previously re-edited on CD, among which stand out the 6 volumes of the famous series Jazz Studio, the LP College Goes
To Jazz, and the 6 records that he recorded under his own name: two Jazz Lab releases, French Horn Jazz, Jazzmantics, Coup de Graas and International Premiere in Jazz, where he lead groups featuring Art Pepper, Jimmy Giuffre, Gerry Mulligan, Zoot Sims, Herb Geller, Bud Shank, Charlie Mariano, Bob Cooper, André Previn, Marty Paich, Dave Pell, Russ Freeman, the Candoli brothers, Shelly Manne, Larry Bunker, Jack Sheldon,
and many others.
