CD of the Day, Nov. 17th

Eddie “Lockjaw” Davis’ and Johnny Griffin’s THE TENOR SCENE, recorded live at Minton’s Playhouse on Jan. 6th, 1961, is a hard-driving classic. These two great tenor men loved playing and it shows on this album. They are having a great time blowing hard and fast. This is just good ole’ playing—nothing fancy (except that you can tell they have great skill and technique), just some great straight-ahead jazz.
