on a B3 organ and a drummer (and I have no idea who he was!) came Gene Ammons,
Dexter Gordon and Sonny Stitt, all 3 on tenors...dang! It was heaven. Dexter was residing
in Europe but was in the states for a bit. It was the one and only time I saw him.
That reminded of the first Sonny Stitt record I ever bought...w/ the Oscar Peterson Trio.

Some great tunes on that one.
