10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Michael Brad Richman HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on June 25, 2004
Format: Audio CD
"Tough Tenors" is the first of many successful collaborative albums by tenor saxphonists Johnny Griffin and Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis. Originally recorded for the Jazzland label, and reissued on CD last year by OJC, this disc also features Junior Mance on piano, Larry Gales on bass and Ben Riley on drums. The songs, recorded on November 4 & 10, 1960, range from classic swing numbers like Lester Young's "Tickle Toes" and Fletcher Henderson's "Soft Winds" to outstanding original compositions like Bennie Green's "Funky Fluke" and the Griffin-Davis penned "Twins." While the dueling saxophone tradition is often about fierce competition and showboating, Davis and Griffin also know it is essential to have genuine musical respect and admiration to make it work well. As a result, for double-barreled tenor sax battles, "Tough Tenors" is tough to beat.

...Awesome.

Two guys who never really got the recognition deserved them for their creativity, energy and passion. Let's face it - there are a lot of tenors out there. A lot of great ones. But Griffin and Jaws bring something extraordinary to the crowded space.

But more than anything, this record just bursts with urgency, soul and passion. Don't go another day without it.

These two have made a few albums together including "Live at Minton's" get them all. Junior Mance on piano is no slouch. The solos for both Eddie and then Johnny on "Save your Love for Me," is hall of fame material. Skilled artists all of them.
