When it comes to playing exciting straight ahead jazz, Johnny Griffin was always impossible to top. Billed as "the world's fastest saxophonist," Griffin was a powerful force from the beginning of his career, playing every note with intensity. While 1956's Introducing Johnny Griffin was actually the 28-year old's second recorded album as a leader, it was his Blue Note debut and one of the milestones of his career. Joined by an unbeatable rhythm section with Wynton Kelly and Max Roach, Griffin excels on barn-busters and ballads alike. A master at ripping effortlessly through chord changes, Griffin displays youthful energy along with the maturity of a veteran, sounding very much like himself throughout this superb outing. 

This Blue Note 80 Vinyl Edition is all-analog, mastered by Kevin Gray from the original master tapes, and pressed on 180g vinyl at Optimal.
