Product Description:

EU two CD set containing all existing collaborations of Gene Ammons with Art Farmer. In 1955-57, Gene Ammons made a series of jam session dates for Prestige with Art Farmer, which constitute the only existing recordings of the two stars together. They have been compiled on this release in their entirety for the first time ever, and are presented here in chronological order. Their collaborative discography consists of the complete LPs Gene Ammons Hi Fidelity Jam Session (AKA the Happy Blues); Gene Ammons All Stars - Hi Fi Jam Session (AKA Jammin' with Gene); and Gene Ammons Hi-Fi Jam Session- Funky, plus the only two Ammons-Farmer conjunct recordings from Gene Ammons All Stars. The trumpeter and tourist are joined on these amazing sessions by such celebrated musicians as Jackie McLean (who plays on all but the first two sides), Lou Donaldson, Donald Byrd, Duke Jordan, Mal Waldron, and Kenny Clarke, among others. A 1951 version of 'New Blues Up And Down' pairing Ammons with Sonny Stitt has been added as a bonus. Includes 24-page booklet. American Jazz Classics.
