Johnny Griffin - The Riverside Collection

Johnny Griffin - The Riverside Collection


In a career spanning over six decades, Johnny Griffin has carved out a reputation as one hard bop’s pioneering musicians. Dubbed the “Little Giant” due to his modest stature and hard-edged sound, his fast, controlled and harmonic style has featured on some of the finest records created within the genre. Although known for playing in support of many big names in jazz - Thelonious Monk, Dizzy Gillespie, Art Blakey etc. - as well as for his partnership with fellow sax man Eddie “Lockjaw” Davis, it was as bandleader that Griffin produced his best work, with his output for Riverside Records in the late 1950s and early 1960s being considered his career highlight by most critics and fans.
This four disc collection brings together the finest material Johnny Griffin released during his years on the Riverside label. Featuring eight fully-remastered albums, containing in total more than five hours of music, this set can serve as both a fitting introduction to this truly exceptional player, and a welcome reminder for jazz fans of what an inspiring and influential musician the man dubbed “the fastest tenor in the west” really was at this time.
