(2-LP set) (45 RPM) Johnny Griffin had been kicking around in R&B bands for years before his Blue Note debut in 1956. And what was "introduced" was a tenor saxophonist with a fresh sound, a warm, soulful style and the fastest technique in jazz. He moves from lyrical ballads to blistering tempos with ease. Within two years, Griff would become one of the leading tenor saxophonists in jazz as a member of Thelonious Monk's quartet. Lineup: Johnny Griffin - tenor saxophone, Wynton Kelly - piano, Curly Russell - bass, Max Roach - drums. 45 rpm.
