Another of the mid-1950s Ammons studio jam sessions for Prestige, Blue Gene lives up to its title by utilizing blues changes as the basis for three of its four selections. Pianist Mal Waldron wrote all these lines and the minor-key ballad, “Hip Tip.” Ammons was one of the most expressive saxophonists and, in Idrees Sulieman and Pepper Adams, he found soulmates among the other horns. Each man had jammed with Gene on Prestige previously.

One of the best jazz re-issues I've ever heard

BIG sound stage, pure-sounding horns, and crisp percussion; all presented on super dead-quiet 45 RPM vinyl. If you like this album, you will be blown away by this pressing. $50 for this quality of sound reproduction is an unbelievable bargain.

Mal Waldron, one of my favorite pianist/ composer penned the tunes on this outing. A three horn line up makes for a lively & classic Prestige session from the fifties. Ammons shows his stuff. The 45 RPM re-issue is the best sounding ever. Prestige was my favorite label when i was in high school, I'm 55 now. Highly recommended.

Sometimes I just get into a down, blue mood and put Gene on. He never lets me down. This one's up there with the better ones from Prestige
