The Jazz Record Art Collective is proud to present the Alex Beltran Quintet performing Gene Ammons and Sonny Stitt's "Boss Tenors", released in 1961.
“This encounter between tenor saxophonist Gene Ammons and Sonny Stitt is a true classic. Ammons and Stitt teamed together many times over a three-decade period, including co-leading a band during 1950-1952, but Boss Tenors is arguably their finest recording. Backed by pianist John Houston, bassist Buster Williams, and drummer George Brown, Ammons and Stitt battle it out on "There Is No Greater Love," Ammons' "The One Before This," "Autumn Leaves," "Blues Up and Down," and Stitt's "Counter Clockwise." This is competitive bebop at its best, with Stitt and Ammons proving to be equal matches. Essential music for all jazz collections.” -Scott Yanow
