Johnny Griffin - A Night In Tunisia (Freedom)


The companion set to this one, You Leave Me Breathless, surfaced here awhile back. I've search for this for years, finding the odd track showing up on another album, and even an edited version of one track. Here's the full album in it's original needle-drop glory. J-Griff was a badass among the badest, and nowhere is that more evident than here.

  1. All The Things You Are
  2. A Night In Tunisia
  3. Exactly Like You
  4. Indiana
  5. Rhythm-a-ning
Johnny Griffin - tenor sax
Kenny Drew - piano
Niels-Henning ├śrsted Pedersen
- bass
Albert Heath - drums

Recorded March 30/31 in Copenhagen

Freedom 147.308
