Overview

All of the music from a pair of two-LP sets is reissued on this three-CD release drawn from the Prestige vaults. Since most of the performances are also available in their original contexts, this release is not all that essential. However there are some fine performances from some of the great bop and blues-oriented tenors of the period (including Gene Ammons, Rusty Bryant, Johnny Grififn, Willis Jackson, Houston Person, Sonny Stitt, Stanley Turrentine, Arnett Cobb, King Curtis, Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis, Jimmy Forrest, Frank Foster, Coleman Hawkins, Illinois Jacquet, Oliver Nelson, Al Sears, Hal Singer and Buddy Tate) so this package serves as a good sampler of their talents.
