The reissue of the two volumes titled The Eminent Jay Jay Johnson straightens out his three Blue Note sessions of 1953-55 and adds alternate takes. This particular LP concentrates exclusively on the trombonist's 1953 sextet date with the great trumpeter Clifford Brown, Jimmy Heath (who doubles on tenor and baritone), pianist John Lewis, bassist Percy Heath and drummer Kenny Clarke. The six titles (plus three alternates) are highlighted by "It Could Happen to You," "Turnpike" and a classic rendition of "Get Happy." Although Johnson has a couple of features, Clifford Brown largely steals the show. This album is well worth getting by listeners who do not have the music on Brownie's own Complete Blue Note set.
