Synopsis

Product 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 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!
