Tip-on jacket on thick cardboard stock.

Called by some "the soul of Chicago tenor saxophony," Gene "Jug" Ammons was a legendary but under-appreciated jazz tenor saxophonist known for his big, bluesy, soulful tone. Ammons' expressive and heartfelt phrasing and the ability to say "more with less" makes his ballads among the most beautiful ever recorded.

One of the best efforts from Ammons' extensive catalog. A fat, warm, rich sax tone - you know, the one you immediately identify as Jug - is on display in all its glory on this great Moodsville release. Feeling tired and stressed out? Give Uncle Gene a spin. Besides perfect pitch, Ammons' other special gift was a melodic sense that allowed him to effectively convey feelings at slow tempos. Here is a great jazz ballad player given full scope to spin his charms.
