For a cat that faced a lot of hard time, Gene sounds remarkably buoyant and carefree on these dates. And what a tone!

Uptight is one of my fav albums period. My father's copy was my introduction to Gene Ammons growing up and it was so beautiful that I gave it away out of love years later to Jean Philippe Allard because he had never heard it.
