Overview

Greatest Hits, Vol. 1: The Sixties

A noble attempt at harnessing a vast and varied career, OJC's hits roundup of Gene Ammons' '60s sides provides a balanced sampling of the tenor great's indelible ballad work and the funkier soul-jazz he also favored during the decade; and, in between, there's a whole lot of top-notch swing and seasoned soloing. From a fine outing with B-3 organ man Jack McDuff ("Twistin' the Jug") to one of his best ballads ("My Foolish Heart"), the mix provides a very enjoyable way to plot your Ammons buying spree. Plus, there's a gem ("Canadian Sunset") from what is arguably Jug's best outing, Boss Tenor.
