Griff ’n’ Bags (Johnny Griffin & a., 1967-1969)

Like for the Rearward set below, these four sessions (1967-1969) were recorded in Cologne by members of the Clarke-Boland Big Band. The title of the collection is deceptive, since Johnny Griffin (“Griff”) only appears on tracks 12 to 16, while Milt Jackson (“Bags”), who can also be heard singing, only in 7 to 11; never once the two play together. The Griffin tracks use two drummers, Kenny Clarke and British Kenny Clare. Tracks 1 to 3 belong to a piano trio of Boland, Woode and Clarke. (Rearward RW103)
