J. J. Johnson & Kai Winding – ‘It’s alright with me’

The trombone is not the most popular instrument and rarely appears as solo instrument. However, there are a few very good trombone players who play their instruments soloing over the chorusses of jazz standards and over own compositions. J.J. Johnson and Kai Winding are two of these virtuoso trombone players. They had been playing together long time ago and came together on stage again at the Aurex Festival and according to Mrs. Kai Winding, it was “exciting to see them on stage, playing as if it they had only been apart 20 minutes. Besides, they did not plan on both wearing white…”
Watch this video of the two great trombone players J. J. Johnson and Kai Winding and listen to them playing the swing style jazz standard ‘It’s alright with me’. Notice the different voices of the two trombones.
