Gene Ammons recorded frequently for Prestige during the 1950s and early ’60s and virtually all of the tenor’s dates were quite rewarding. This two-LP set reissues Twistin’ the Jug plus part of Angel Eyes and Velvet Soul. Ammons, a bop-based but very versatile soloist, sounds quite comfortable playing a variety of standards and lesser-known material in groups featuring Jack McDuff or Johnny "Hammond" Smith on organ and either trumpeter Joe Newman or Frank Wess on tenor and flute. This version of "Angel Eyes" became a surprise hit.~Scott Yanow
