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 (in the tenor player's own opinion) undue emphasis on his ability to perform at blistering tempos. This LP was the first of several attempts to change Griffin's image through more carefully structured albums - in this case Norman Simmons' arrangements played by a strong sextet featuring Blue Mitchell and Wynton Kelly. Musicians: Johnny Griffin, tenor sax Blue Mitchell, trumpet Julian Priester, trombone Wynton Kelly, piano Sam Jones, bass Albert Heath, drums (Lonely One is by Griffin, Jones and Heath Only)
