Synopsis

Album Description
2008 reissue of the complete best-selling album from Jazz trombonists Jay Jay Johnson and Kai Winding featuring a total of six bonus tracks. A frontline of two trombones was an atypical combination for Jazz prior to the groundbreaking collaborations by Jay Jay Johnson and Danish-born Kai Winding. The original 1957 LP Jay & Kai, presented here, included two complete sessions by the tandem plus a couple of tunes taken from different sessions. The live Newport tracks added here as a bonus first appeared on a Newport compilation coupled with tunes by the Dave Brubeck Quartet. As a final addition, this CD also includes three rare tracks presenting Jay and Kai as part of groups conducted by Quincy Jones. The first two ("You're Crying" and "Funk Junction") were the only instrumental songs from an album featuring singer King Pleasure. The last one, which also includes two more trombonists, was the only issued tune from a February 25, 1955 session that according to discographies, produced more tunes which for some reason were never issued.
