This release contains the complete long unavailable LP Blue Trombone, which was J. J. Johnson's second complete album in a quartet format. The sessions, with master accompaniment by Tommy Flanagan, Paul Chambers and Max Roach, went so well that material for two albums was gathered (the other album, First Place, is reissued on the companion volume AJC 99003). As a bonus, two quartet tracks taken from Johnson's previous quintet sessions, as well as five quintet tracks that complete all of the master takes from the latter of those sessions.
