Johnny Griffin - Introducing Johnny Griffin - New 2019 Record LP Black Vinyl German Import Reissue - Jazz / Hard Bop


STREET DATE: 6/14/19

Tenor saxophonist Johnny Griffin blew out of Chicago and made his debut album for Blue Note Records in 1956 steering a nimble quartet with pianist Wynton Kelly, bassist Curly Russell, and drummer Max Roach through a fantastic set of originals and standards. From the blistering opener “Mil Dew” to the loping “Chicago Calling” and bluesy “Nice and Easy” Griffin’s staggering technical ability and buoyant swing is readily apparent at every twist and turn.
