J & K / J.J. Johnson & Kai Winding - Betwixt And Between Betwixt And Between
Jazz New - LP SP 3018 A&M
Sealed 1969 Heavy-Duty, Laminated Gatefold Original. “The Second Of The Three K And JJ (Or J & K) Collaborations For A&M's CTI Series Takes An Idea From The First -- That Of Baroque Elaborations -- And Runs With It. Here, The Twin Trombonists Link Each Track With A Brief Interlude -- Some By Bach, One By Prokofiev (Uncredited) -- For Brass Quintet And Guitar. Indeed, There Are Experiments All Over This Quintessentially '60s Project -- And Purists Can't Blame It On An Outside Arranger, For Johnson And Winding Do All But One Of The Charts Themselves. A Lot Of This Record Has A Mild Period-Rock Feeling Marked By The Edgy Guitar Of Joe Beck And The Wonderfully Funky Clavinet Of, Yes, Roger Kellaway (Who Else Would Contribute A Song Entitled "Just A Funky Old Vegetable Bin") -- And On One Track, The Trombonists Hide Behind The Dusky Sounds Of Varitone Octave-Multiplying Amplifiers. All Of This Is Unified Not By The Rather Self-Conscious Interludes But By Creed Taylor's Immaculate Pop-Flavored Production, So Much So That The Golden-Toned Trombonists Are Almost, But Not Quite, Bit Players On Their Own Album. A Fascinating, No Doubt Controversial, Record.” Richard S. Ginell, AMG.... more details
