Saxophone player Johnny Griffin (part 5). He wasn’t just on fire when he played a daredevil tempo but also in a medium piece or a ballad. Attention for 2 Riverside albums with a mild and lyrical streak: The Kerry Dancers and Pisces on which he was accompanied by piano players Barry Harris and Horace Parlan.
