Tenor saxophonist Gene Ammons recorded many albums during 1961-1962, a busy period that was brought to an abrupt halt by his arrest for narcotics abuse. Jug finds the great tenor in excellent form, interpreting six standards and two of his originals with the assistance of pianist Richard Wyands, bassist Doug Watkins, drummer J.C. Heard, and the congas of Ray Barretto; Sleepy Anderson replaces Wyands on two songs, one of which he takes on organ. Few surprises occur, but fans will not be disappointed by his soulful and lyrical playing.
