The Musical World of J.J. Johnson


J.J. Johnson, known as the spiritual father of modern trombone, has been a notable figure in the history of jazz. His career has embodied virtually every innovation and development in jazz over the past half-century. In this first comprehensive biography, filmography, catalog of compositions, and discography, the authors explore Johnson's childhood and early education, document his first compositions, and examine his classical roots, thereby creating a unique and powerful illustration of the composer's technical and stylistic development.

New in the paperback edition is an Epilogue containing vital information about Johnson's suicide as well as an Index of Discography Titles.
