The 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' very best albums. Accompaniment by Tommy Flanagan, one of the best mainstream pianists ever, certainly doesn't hurt, either.
