A Jazz Master
David Lalljee | London United Kingdom | 12/04/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"One of the greatest and most influential figures in 20th century improvised music, JJ is on awesome form here. Some may find Sabu's playing a distraction, but JJ's majestic tone and awesome inventive power shine through all over the album. Back to back ballads (in the same key!) have Mingus and Co leaving all the space in the world for that famously fat sound to sing out, pure, and as close to the human voice as any other sound you will ever hear. The only negative is the seemingly now obligatory inclusion of alternate takes of some tracks - a practice JJ himself abhorred. For my money, this is every bit as good as the better known Eminent JJ Volume 1, and deserves its place at the top of the pantheon of recorded "textbooks" for trombonists. Add this to your collection as a fitting tribute to the man, now sorely missed, who changed the way the trombone was played - and listened to - forever."
