J.J. Johnson, Kai Winding & Bennie Green

A classic early album on Prestige – and one that features some heavy bop sessions cut for early 78s, all nicely packaged in a great cover by the famous Mad Magazine cartoonist Don Martin! The record features 3 sets of different tracks led by three of bop's greatest trombonists – JJ Johson, Kai Winding, and Bennie Green – and titles include "Hilo", "Elysses", "Fox Hunt", "Waterworks", "Sid's Bounce", and "Whirl A Licks".

Que sorpresa con este disco !, tanta alharaca con la fusión jazz-rock de Miles Davis cuando ya no sabía que hacer y resulta que acá hay unos temas que son puro rock bailable al estilo Bill Haley, y por la fecha de las grabaciones es bastante anterior a la "fusion", muchas gracias.
