Overlooked Gem
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This fine collection combines three tracks the great tenor saxophonist Gene Ammons recorded with a quartet (piano, bass, drums) in 1962 and four tracks recorded with a sharp studio orchestra in 1961. Some releases that combine different sessions and/or bands are awkward; this is not one of them. The disc is well paced and cohesive, with a number of highlights, including a wonderful version of Fletcher Henderson's "Soft Winds" (originally made famous by Benny Goodman's Sextet with Charlie Christian) and Clark Terry's fine work on a terrific version of Mercer Ellington's "Things Ain't What They Used To Be." As usual, Ammons' tone is distinctive, rich, and swinging. Highly recommended."
