J.J. Johnson – The Eminent Volume One + Volume Two

For over four decades, until his death on February 4, 2001, J.J. Johnson (Or Jay Jay, as his early recordings had it) was the preeminent voice on trombone. So Fixe was his position at the top of the polls-even during this years of film scoring and his subsequent retirement from performing-it is easy to forget that his stature with the public, and that of his peers among the modernist, was not alwasy so exalted. At the time this recording session took place in 1953, Johnson had responded to the lean time facing his jazz generation by withdrawing from full-time playing in favor of a more scure factory job. When the titles were reissued on 12″ LP two years later, Johnson’s fortunes had reversed, and he was celebrating the first of a string of a poll vicotires taht would spread across the decades. These are some of the perforamnces that helped tunr matters around.

Miles Davis Albums!

Miles Dewey Davis III (May 26, 1926 – September 28, 1991) was an American jazz trumpeter, bandleader, and composer.

Widely considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century, Miles Davis was, with his musical groups, at the forefront of several major developments in jazz music, including bebop, cool jazz, hard bop, modal jazz, and jazz fusion. Many well-known musicians rose to prominence as members of Davis’ ensembles, including saxophonists Gerry Mulligan, John Coltrane, Cannonball Adderley, George Coleman, Wayne Shorter, and Kenny Garrett; trombonist J. J. Johnson; pianists Bill Evans, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, and Keith Jarrett; guitarists John McLaughlin, John Scofield and Mike Stern; bassists Paul Chambers, Ron Carter, and Dave Holland; and drummers Tony Williams, Billy Cobham and Jack DeJohnette.

On October 7, 2008, his album Kind of Blue, released in 1959, received its fourth platinum certification from the RIAA, signifying sales of 4 million copies. Miles Davis was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006. Davis was noted as “one of the key figures in the history of jazz”.

On November 5, 2009, Rep. John Conyers of Michigan sponsored a measure in the US House of Representatives to recognize and commemorate the album Kind of Blue on its 50th anniversary. The measure also affirms jazz as a national treasure and “encourages the United States government to preserve and advance the art form of jazz music.” It passed, unanimously, with a vote of 409–0 on December 15, 2009.
