One of the rarest Johnny Griffin albums ever – a set recorded as a side project when Griff was working with the Clarke Boland Big Band – in a lineup that features some of the best members from that great ensemble! The style's a bit more laidback and soulful than other CBBB projects – more in the mode of Johnny's roots in Chicago during the 50s, but still inflected with some of the sharper touches he picked up during his 60s years in Europe. Other players here are all wonderful – and include Benny Bailey, Sahib Shihab, Ake Persson, Francy Boland, Jimmy Woode and Kenny Clarke and Kenny Clare, seemingly playing together on some tracks, which creates a nicely skittish rhythm in the set!

  • Johnny Griffin - tenor sax
  • Sahib Shihab - baritone sax
  • Åke Persson - trombone
  • Francy Boland - piano
