  3. Minor Mist [named by a member of the audience at the Jazz Workshop in San Francisco] is according to J.J. – “a dark pulse” [the ‘pulse’ part being reinforced by Tootie’s use of tympani mallets on tom toms.] It is held together by a vamp around which J.J. weaves its beautiful melody.

  5. Minor Mist is a beautiful melody woven by J.J. in and out of the ensemble—it showcases his beautiful tone—and there is some great brush work by Tootie. Aquarius is almost orchestral the way it is put together, with the trumpet/trombone unison melody going against the tenor sax/piano counterpoint. The interlude is very contrapuntal as well.

  6. This may have originally been intended to represent or refer to J. J. Johnson's Jazz Quintets or to one of the Savoy singles or EPs released from ~ (see below) but, either way, I believe the J.J. Johnson listing is now redundant / uneccessary and I have removed it. (but I'll keep double checking.).
