Bohanon, George

** This is just a short biographical summary – for the full story, check out this artist’s reviews! **

Trombonist George Bohanon – spelled “Bohannon” in many sources, including The Complete Motown Singles: Volume 3, but this is apparently a mistake – was a go-to brass player for Motown studio sessions, and in 1963 he was one of the handful of Motown musicians granted his own LP on the Workshop Jazz label (Boss Bossa Nova), yielding one promotional single covered here on Motown Junkies. Motown’s flirtation with the jazz market was short-lived, and Bohanon wasn’t afforded the chance to cut any more of his own records (a second album, Bold Bohanon, remained unreleased). George played trombone on many “mainstream” Motown records, remaining an unofficial part of the Funk Brothers band until 1968.
