Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis & Johnny Griffin Quintet, "The Tenor Scene" (OJC)
This is one of few reviews of this album on the internet, but you know, this is the best one out there. Once Junior Mance hits his solo on "Straight, No Chaser," you also know something else: classic. And once the tenors start talking... but everything ain't just two dudes talking. My place in time is a big-nada history, but my place with you is shown symbolically.
Suggested Wine Pairing: To put out this fire you will need a fIREHOSE and at least 15% alc./vol.: Bodegas La Cartuja, Priorat, 2007. Me and Mike Watt playing guitar.
