AMG:
This CD reissue finds trombonist J.J. Johnson in prime form. In fact, his melancholy minor-toned explorations often recall Miles Davis, whose group he had played with the year before). Backed on six of the seven tracks by pianist Harold Mabern, who at the time was heavily influenced by McCoy Tyner, bassist Arthur Harper and drummer Frank Gant, Johnson gets to really stretch out on "Neo," "Minor Blues" and "Blues Waltz"; "Gloria" was previously available only on an Impulse sampler. Manny Albam's "Lullaby of Jazzland," on which Johnson is joined by guitarist Toots Thielemans, pianist McCoy Tyner, bassist Richard Davis and drummer Elvin Jones, rounds out the excellent set.

Tracks:
01 - Neo (Miles Davis) - (10:19)
02 - Gloria [bonus track] (Bronislaw Kaper)- (3:04)
03 - Stella by Starlight (Ned Washington, Victor Young) -(4:02)
04 - Minor Blues (J.J. Johnson) -(8:04)
05 - My Funny Valentine (Richard Rodgers, Lorenz Hart) - (3:02)
06 - Blues Waltz (Max Roach) - (8:05)
07 - Lullaby of Jazzland (Manny Albam, Rick Ward) - (5:08)

Personnel:
J.J. Johnson - trombone (1-7)
Harold Mabern - piano (1-6)
Arthur Harper - bass (1-6)
Frank Gant - drums (1-6)
