Mastered by Alan Yoshida!

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 perhaps undue emphasis on his ability to perform at blistering tempos. This album features excellent Norman Simmons arrangements played by a strong sextet including Blue Mitchell and Wynton Kelly. The sonics are stunning!

Johnny Griffin, tenor saxophone
Blue Mitchell, trumpet
Julian Priester, trombone
Wynton Kelly, piano
Sam Jones, bass
Albert "Tootie" Heath, drums
