Johnson Sextet ‎– . Inc. Label: Sony Records ‎– SRCS 9353.

Johnson Sextet (1961, Jazz).

Inc. is an album by jazz trombonist J. J. Johnson, released in 1961. Trombonist Steve Turre says of the album, ". finds the master in a sextet setting, with an incredible line-up of young talent. He further states, "You can hear more blues in . s solos than in his younger bandmates, and that depth of feeling is always apparent in whatever he plays, whenever he plays.

Johnson's 1960 sextet is featured on this Columbia CD. Most notable among the sidemen is a rather young trumpeter named Freddie Hubbard on one of his first sessions; also helping out are tenor saxophonist Clifford Jordan, pianist Cedar Walton, bassist Arthur Harper and drummer Albert "Tootie" Heath. Seven of the compositions (which are joined by Dizzy Gillespie's "Blue 'N' Boogie") are Johnson's and, although none caught on, "Mohawk," "In Walked Horace" and "Fatback" (which is heard in two versions) are.
