J.J. solos at his hard driving, infectious best.
04/17/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I first picked up this album on vinyl (mono no less) well over 30 years ago. I still have and cherish it. I was an aspiring trombonist, and as a kid I'd heard about J.J. Johnson. He was the best there was with a slide. The jazz I heard was infectious, lively, inspiring. J.J. gives us some of the finest trombone improvizations I've ever heard in my many years of listening to jazz. I still can't play trombone, but I know a great one when it's played. This is it!Just turn down the lights, turn up the volume or put on the headphones. Immerse yourself in the building, swelling interpretation J.J. gives. Like good classical music, this isn't simply to be "heard" as background music. Dive into it and let it take you for the ride of your life. His work on Neo, Minor Blues and Blues Waltz are unforgettable."

"You can't go wrong here, as this CD is brilliant from start to finish. JJ's accomplishments only become more impressive with the passage of time, and this is as good a place as any to enjoy the depth of his musical gifts."
