  • The late great tenor saxophonist Gene Ammons was of the generation of Swing Era players that easily adapted to bop. But though he was a modernist, Ammons maintained that breathy, old-school romantic approach to the tenor. BOSS TENOR, a quintet session from 1960, is one of Ammons's very best albums ever. Ray Barretto's congas subtly add a bit of Latin spice, but otherwise TENOR is a collection of standards rendered with a gorgeous late-night bluesy feel. Accompaniment by Tommy Flanagan, one of the best mainstream pianists ever, certainly doesn't hurt, either. A gem.
Professional Reviews
Q (3/00, p.116) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...A relaxed, mildly funky affair, it features Ammons and a stellar, simpatico rhythm section kicking fresh life into the blues...and even returning to 52nd Street via 'Confirmation', utilizing nary one dud phrase along the way.
