J.J. Johnson's signature ballad, Lament was best known for the Miles Davis / Gil Evans version from Miles Ahead (1957, Columbia). This arrangement is a transcription from the original track by J.J. and Kai Winding on Jay and Kai, aiming to recreate the recording in an unaccompanied trombone quartet exactly.

Written for advanced ensembles, this arrangement features the top two trombones, but the other two are kept busy with recreating the jazz trio underneath. A smooth, warm sound is recommended to blend the trombones, whilst care must be taken in the upper register to sound sweet.

Beautifully laid out in A4 size, the score and parts are easy to read and available NOW for digital download. We suggest you print on 80gsm paper, to ensure that the copies last longer in your bands library. If you're printing on letter size paper, please fit to page when sending to the printer.
