Yonatan is an amazing trombonist that lived in NY for many years before making a return to his home in Tel Aviv, Israel! We actually first met back in 2015 when I had the chance to play over there with Eyal Vilner and his big band - and he happened to be in NY and have a free day so we could record something! I’ve been making a habit of featuring this JJ Johnson composition every time I have the chance to perform as a guest soloist alongside a big band - most recently this spring at Glendale Community College. I always enjoy getting to play music with Yonatan, even if it’s so infrequently! I hope this is as fun for you, as it was for us to record it!
