This release presents two complete albums by the great Johnny Griffin. Grab This! (Riverside RLP S9437) features the tenor player in a quintet format with Paul Bryant on organ (this was the first of Griffin’s very rare recordings with an organist), and Joe Pass on guitar. The Kerry Dancers and Other Swinging Folk (Riverside RLP S9420) is in great part a collection of traditional songs arranged by Griffin and presents him in a quartet format with an all-star rhythm section consisting of Barry Harris on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Ben Riley on drums.
