"Blue Monk" - J.J. Johnson and Kai Winding

Except for the 12-bar structure of the tune, there's really nothing "blue" about this performance by trombonists J.J. Johnson and Kai Winding. On the contrary, accompanied by pianist Bill Evans, bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Roy Haynes, the solo work by Jay and Kai on this video is guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Music from a time [1960] when Giants Walked The Earth.
