Gene Ammons - Brasswind (Prestige 1974)


Blogger sou.th low said...

Veteran tenor saxophonist Ammons is accompanied by a funky 12-piece band arranged by David Axelrod on this commercial but interesting release, one of his last recordings. The repertoire consists of a couple of Ammons originals, two by Axelrod, Wes Montgomery's "Cariba," Antonio Carlos Jobim's "Once I Loved," and the Monk standard "'Round Midnight." Ammons plays well and even if the arrangements are somewhat dated (George Duke's keyboards do not help), this set has its strong moments.
