Teamed up with pianist Kenny Drew, bassist Niels Pedersen and drummer Albert “Tootie” Heath for a club date at Copenhagen’s Montmartre in 1967, the great tenor saxophonist Johnny Griffin really stretches out on four numbers: “The Man I Love,” “Hush-A-Bye,” “Blues for Harvey” and a memorable version of “The Masquerade Is Over.” Griffin shows why he was early on billed as “the world’s fastest tenor” although he also displays warmth on “Sophisticated Lady.” A fine example of Griffin’s underrated talents.¬†This deluxe 3LP edition is limited to 500 numbered units, and includes the standard 33rpm LP edition of the album, along with a 2LP 45rpm edition in a die-cut gatefold jacket.¬†
