Gene Ammons – Had a unique and influential way with notes.

Continuing our low-key post-Thanksgiving weekend with the legendary Gene Ammons and Angel Eyes from the Prestige album of the same title. Recorded June 17, 1960. Playing along with Ammons is Frank Wess on tenor Sax, Johnny “Hammond” Smith, organ. Doug Watkins, bass and Arthur Taylor on drums.

One of the great sax players in Jazz, whose career was cut way too short and interrupted way too many times.
