τι μπορούν να σου κάνουν τα ονόματα... ποιος από εσάς δεν είναι περίεργος να ακούσει το δίσκο του johnny walker;;;!; τυχαία τον συνάντησα στο δίκτυο μια μέρα και το κατέβασα, πρόκειται για μια τζαζ ηχογράφηση ενός μάλλον άγνωστου καλλιτέχνη. στο orgy in rhythm που δίνει λινκ γράφει:
"Private pressing business with a session spanning hard bop to funk for Johnny Walker who was hot to trot straight out of Lionel Hampton's big band.
"Arrival" and "Dipping" were the tunes bangin' out the jazz rooms at the time.
Here's what Lionel had to say about his young protege:
"Johnny Walker -Trumpeter,Flugelhornist,Composer,Arranger and Band Leader is destined to become one of the major voices of the 80s.When Johnny came to my band in 1980 he brought with him a a positive professional attitude and an eagerness to learn and develop musically.His trumpet playing showed maturity and strength whether out front soloing or as part of the section.As a composer his original works show imagination and assertivness.
Just like Clifford Brown,Nat Adderley,Kenny Dorham,Art Farmer and other great trumpet players who have come through my band,Johnny is ready to take his place with the great trumpet stylists of the 1980s."
.ήταν μία κλάση ανώτεροι.
