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.

Boss Tenors (subtitled Straight Ahead from Chicago August 1961) is an album by saxophonists Gene Ammons and Sonny Stitt recorded in Chicago in 1961 and originally released on the Verve label. There Is No Greater Love" (Isham Jones, Marty Symes) - 6:30. The One Before This" (Gene Ammons) - 7:09.
