Johnny Griffin was a soulful, inventive tenor saxophone virtuoso with a magnificent tone and the ability to navigate the fastest tunes and the most sophisticated chord changes with seemingly effortless precision. This DVD features two 1971 French concerts with Griff's quartet featuring drummer Art Taylor and guest artist Dizzy Gillespie on "Hot House" and "A Night In Tunisia." The band is on fire through bebop classics from Tadd Dameron, Dizzy, Thelonious Monk and Charlie Parker as well as four of Griff's best-known originals. Taylor's unrelenting swing drives this band to incredible heights.
