Jug finds the great tenor in excellent form, interpreting six standards and two of his originals with the assistance of pianist Richard Wyands, bassist Doug Watkins, drummer . Heard, and the congas of Ray Barretto; Sleepy Anderson replaces Wyands on two songs, one of which he takes on organ. Few surprises occur, but fans will not be disappointed by his soulful and lyrical playing.

In addition his one session with his father (the legendary boogie-woogie pianist Albert Ammons) is also included; how many listeners have noticed that Albert's original "Hiroshima" has the same chord changes as the standard "Nagasaki"? Throughout these performances Gene Ammons shows that his tone and style were already largely fully formed.

Eugene "Jug" Ammons (April 14, 1925 – August 6, 1974), also known as "The Boss", was an American jazz tenor saxophonist. Born in Chicago, Illinois, Ammons studied music with instructor Walter Dyett at DuSable High School. Ammons began to gain recognition while still at high school when in 1943, at the age of 18, he went on the road with trumpeter King Kolax's band
