Aged to Perfection
Johnson Lee | Irvine, CA USA | 07/18/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Like Joe Henderson who released one beautiful CD after another in the past 10 years or so, Griffin plays here with gorgeous tone and overflowing musicality only getting better with age. I love the newer sax lions like James Carter, Joshua Redman, and Joe Lovano but Griffin, again like Joe Henderson, seems to be bringing out the qualities only possessed by those who came from 50s.
To me, this album is up there with the very best works by Dexter Gordon and Hank Mobley. If you think that's a stretch, just listen to My Romance, one of the most poignant ballad renditions I've ever heard on saxophone. Add Roy Hargrove (trumpet) and Kenny Baron (piano) to that and you have a formula for utmost beauty."
