During the two-year existence of their "Tough Tenors" quintet, Eddie "Lockjaw"
Davis (a Prestige artist) and Johnny Griffin (under contract to
Riverside/Jazzland) satisfied their contractual obligations by recording five
albums for each company. This was the pair's first for Prestige, and the first
of a four-album series taped over the course of an extremely productive evening
at the legendary Minton's Playhouse in Harlem. The album, also known as The
Breakfast Show in an earlier reissue, gives the rhythm section several
opportunities to shine, with Ben Riley's drums dominant on "Woody'n You," "Bingo
Domingo" featuring Larry Gale's bass, and Junior Mance's piano solo almost
stealing the show on "Light and Lovely." It is the leaders, though, who
consistently deliver with their complimentary brand of intensity, which is heard
at the boil throughout and reaches a particular peak when they exchange ideas on
"Straight, No Chaser."
