Great Kai and JJ transcribed sheet music


Complete transcribed sheet music from "The Great Kai and JJ", one of the great jazz/commercial trombone recordings of all time. Contains trombone and rhythm section parts for all eleven tunes, including improvised trombone solos and chord changes.

With this sheet music, it is possible to play an electronic duet with either JJ or Kai, because JJ and Kai are panned hard left and hard right. Just place your headphones on only one ear, and you will hear just JJ or just Kai, along with yourself (plus a worldclass rhythm section).
