Gene Ammons - Angel Eyes mp3 album

Angel Eyes is an album by saxophonist Gene Ammons compiling sessions recorded in 1960 and 1962 and released on the Prestige label in 1965. The latter set was one of Ammons' final ones before serving a long prison sentence (drug-related), yet his interpretations are full of optimism. Gettin' Around" (Gene Ammons) – 6:46.

Music from two different occasions are combined on this CD reissue. The four songs from 1960 match the great tenor Gene Ammons with Frank Wess (doubling on flute and tenor), organist Johnny "Hammond" Smith, bassist Doug Watkins, and drummer Art Taylor. Wess, one of jazz's great flutists, battles Ammons on tenor to a draw on "Water Jug," while the leader takes "Angel Eyes" as his memorable feature

Shliffiana
This is an awesome and accessible "Soul Jazz" record from a sax great with fantastic accompanists. If you can pick this up for $20 or less its a great deal! This record is under rated and way undervalued.
