Gheorghe Posted February 23, 2020 Report Share Posted February 23, 2020 (edited) @BillF Really nice antecdote ! Well if I think about it, with the exception that the bridge of Four Brothers is 8 bars, you can master it pretty well if you know the running changes of the bridge of Cherokee. I´m not at the piano right now, but later I´ll check it out. I played it once. About antecdotes related to Trombones: When I was in the last grade of high school, you know I was one of those long haired hipsters and I had a driving licence and since my school resultates were very good (in spite of my wild outfit, not the one of a model student) it was okay with my father that I could do what I want in my leisure time so I went out to the clubs to hear all those greats. One boy from a lower grade looked up to me as kind of a mentor and when I played some J.J Johnson for him (it was the Yokohama concert, brandnew then in 1977, he carved into his school bench "J.J. Johnson is the best". The next day, Kai Winding was in town, I went to see him and told the boy about it the next morning, and one day later he had carved "Kai Winding.....too!" Yes, the J.J. Johnson I posted is the Savoy Sessions from 1946/47. I bought it together with the Dexter Gordon Savoy session. From the late forties you have the sides he made with Fats Navarro.
