Entertainment Reviews:

Q - 3/00, p.116
3 stars out of 5 - "...A relaxed, mildly funky affair, it features Ammons and a stellar, simpatico rhythm section kicking fresh life into the blues...and even returning to 52nd Street via 'Confirmation', utilizing nary one dud phrase along the way.

The late great tenor saxophonist Gene Ammons was of the generation of Swing Era players that easily adapted to bop. But though he was a modernist, Ammons maintained that breathy, old-school romantic approach to the tenor. BOSS TENOR, a quintet session from 1960, is one of Ammons's very best albums ever. Ray Barretto's congas subtly add a bit of Latin spice, but otherwise TENOR is a collection of standards rendered with a gorgeous late-night bluesy feel. Accompaniment by Tommy Flanagan, one of the best mainstream pianists ever, certainly doesn't hurt, either. A gem.
