The same formula that made the Fantasy 45 Series perhaps the most successful
audiophile reissue collection ever is now being reapplied to Blue Note reissues!
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.
