    He is a multi instrumentalist - equally at home on alto, tenor, soprano, baritone, flute - think Charlie Parker , Phil Woods.

    the very lovely WILLOW WEEP FOR ME.

    In spite of two "intervals" in his career in 1969 Ammons was offered what was the largest contract ever offered at that time by Prestige.
    This Project focuses on music spanning Gene Ammons' entire career from1943 to 1974.

    Completing the line up this evening will be LIAM DUNACHIE/Hammond - ARNIE SOMOGI/Bass and MATT HOME/Drums
