Product Description:

Personnel: Gene Ammons (tenor saxophone); Hank Jones (piano); Kenny Burrell (guitar); Bucky Pizzarelli (Spanish guitar); Norman Edge (bass); Oliver Jackson (drums); Al Hayes (bongos).
Recorded at the Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey on September 9, 1962. Originally released on Prestige (7257). Includes original release liner notes by Del Shields.
Digitally remastered by Phil De Lancie (Fantasy Studios, Berkeley, California).
This was Ammons' final recording before "being made an example of" and getting a lengthy jail sentence for possession of heroin; his next record would be cut over seven years later. The music is surprisingly upbeat, with Ammons joined by two guitars (Bucky Pizzarelli and Kenny Burrell), a fine rhythm section (pianist Hank Jones, bassist Norman Edge, and drummer Oliver Jackson), and the bongos of Al Hayes for a set of Latin-flavored jazz that was masquerading as bossa nova. The music is offbeat if not all that memorable, a decent effort but not essential. ~ Scott Yanow
