They All Called Him “J. J.”—The Music of J. J. Johnson

Monday, April 22, 2019 at 7:30pm

McClintock Choral and Recital Room

Joe Clark and Jarrard Harris, conductors

His mother named him James Louis, but the jazz world knew him as “J. J.” Without a doubt one of the most influential instrumentalists in the history of the genre, J. J. Johnson created a body of work and a musical vocabulary that changed perceptions of the trombone. His compositional contributions to bebop and third stream jazz were considered “top shelf.” This concert shines a light on the world of J. J. Johnson through student arrangements of his original works.

Tickets are $6 for the general public and $4 for students with valid ID.
