Gene Ammons Blue Gene on LP
Another of the mid-1950s Gene Ammons studio jam sessions for Prestige, Blue Gene lives up to its title by utilizing blues changes as the basis for three of its four selections. Pianist Mal Waldron wrote all these lines and the minor-key ballad, "Hip Tip." Ammons was one of the most expressive saxophonists and, in Idrees Sulieman and Pepper Adams, he found soulmates among the other horns. Their musical cohesion here is top notch in thanks to the fact that each man had jammed with Gene on Prestige dates previously.
