This week’s video revisits one of my first video posts here on youtube, where I recorded a short version of JJ Johnson’s great composition “Judy

Here however, I’m featuring one of my great friends and fellow trombonists: Joe McDonough! Joe and I were pursuing our Masters degrees at Juilliard at the same time, and both studying with the great Steve Turre. 

For a while, we had a co-led two trombone quintet that celebrated the two trombone tradition started by JJ Johnson and Kai Winding. We recorded a few tracks back in 2013, and I think we just might release some of those very soon… stay tuned!  

Joe keeps his online presence to a minimum so I can’t direct you to see him online, but if you are lucky enough to catch him live you’re in for a real treat!

Please enjoy and Share! “Judy” by JJ Johnson

See you next week -
