with Johnny Griffin

The 50's saw many great musicians in Chicago but htose appearing on this CD are among the best and most rpresented of that era. Ira Sullivan is noted for his versatility, playing several instruments at gigs and on recordings. Here is heard predominantly on trumpet but we also get a taste of baritone sax, alto sax and peck horn. Johnny Griffin is one of the finest tenor sax players in jazz. This 1959 session came shortly after Griffin recorded with Thelonious Monk and Art Blakey.
