Official release of stellar, previously-unissued live recordings from jazz tenor saxophonists Johnny Griffin and Eddie Lockjaw Davis, captured at the Seattle Club Penthouse between May-June 1962.

Meticulous high-res transferred sound restoration from the original tapes.

Features interviews with saxophonist James Carter and drummer Kenny Washington, and includes newly commissioned essays by Ted Panken and Michael Weiss.

Other titles in the series include Cannonball Adderley Swingin In Seattle and Etta Jones A Soulful Sunday.

Nicknamed the Little Giant for his short stature and forceful playing, Johnny Griffin’s career began in the early 1940s and continued until the month of his death in 2008. A pioneering figure in hard bop, Griffin recorded prolifically as a bandleader in addition to stints with pianist Thelonious Monk, drummer Art Blakey, in partnership with fellow tenor Eddie Lockjaw Davis and as a member of the Kenny Clarke/Francy Boland Big Band after he moved to Europe in the 1960s.Nicknamed the Little Giant for his short stature and forceful playing, Johnny Griffin’s career began in the early 1940s and continued until the month of his death in 2008.

He played in the swing, bop, hard bop, Latin jazz, and soul jazz genres. Some of his recordings from the 1940s also could be classified as rhythm and blues.
