This live CD marks the first release of music recorded during a series of dates led by Johnny Griffin at Montmartre Jazzhaus, with Kenny Drew, Niels Pedersen and Art Taylor. Both "What Is This Thing Called Love?" and Griffin's "Doctor's Blues" are long jams, with the latter including a humorous vocal by the leader. All of the musicians are in top form throughout, highlighted by the pulsating "Wee Dot" and a tribal chant-like introduction to build tension as they launch "A Night In Tunisia." These recordings are a little bit on the bassy side, and there are noticeable tape dropouts at times.
