Widely regarded as an original founder of the "Chicago school of tenor sax," Ammons' nonchalant, yet indelible sound—echoing the soft, breathy tone of Lester Young—drove him to a great deal of fame within the post- World War II jazz crowds of the '50s. Ammons, famously nicknamed "Jug," had an inherent ability to cultivate new emotion within any obsolete standard, stemming from his signature timbre that was steeped in the blues, gospel, and R&B. Renowned for his versatility, Ammons was well-versed in the bebop tradition, yet greatly influenced the marketable "soul jazz" movement of the '60s. Throughout his fruitful career, Ammons was a stalwart player for Prestige Records; even after suffering through long stints in prison for drug-related charges, producer Bob Weinstock made sure that he would continue to share his gift until his death in 1974. While Ammons' association with Prestige documented historic meetings with his contemporaries such as Sonny Stitt, the most enduring of the catalog continues to be 1960's Boss Tenor—a classic effort that has been newly reissued by Analogue Productions as a part of their Prestige stereo reissues series. Leading a dexterous backing group consisting of prominent pianist Tommy Flanagan, bassist Doug Watkins, drummer Art Taylor, and conguero Ray Barretto, Ammons jovially showcases why he was indeed a "boss tenor." Being the only horn player during this recording date, Ammons acquired the necessary space to properly illustrate his robust, commanding sound and general authority over his music and band. The eclectic mix of styles on the album helped to illuminate his diverse musical influences as well.
