Description:One of the most formidable improvisers of the post-bebop 1950s, Johnny Griffin attracted more than his share of nicknames: "Little Giant" referred jointly to his large musical stature and small size; the widely-used "Fastest Gun in the West" placed (in the tenor player's own opinion) undue emphasis on his ability to perform at blistering tempos.

This LP was the first of several attempts to change Griffin's image through more carefully structured albums - in this case Norman Simmons' arrangements played by a strong sextet featuring Blue Mitchell and Wynton Kelly.

A classic album, lovingly and carefully remastered by JVC's perfectionists for discerning audiophiles!

Produced by Orrin Keepnews. Recorded by Jack Higgins at Reeves Sound Studios, NYC in August 1959. This XRCD produced by Akira Taguchi and mastered by Alan Yoshida at A&M Mastering Studios, Hollywood, CA.

XRCD from JVC brings the listener higher fidelity and improved audio quality by enhancing the process of mastering and manufacturing compact discs. The XRCD is compatible with all CD players.
