The Little Giant - The Story of Johnny Griffin


230 pgs.
Northway Publ.

Johnny Griffin is recognized internationally as a major jazz star with a readily identifiable style, an immense improvisational flair and an unfailing capacity to swing. He is also an articulate, witty and entertaining conversationalist with an unending flow of anecdotal reminiscences about his days with Lionel Hampton, Art Blakey, Thelonious Monk, Eddie 'Lockjaw' Davis, the Clarke-Boland Big Band and other groups he has fronted during his 53-year career. This biography by Mike Hennessey is a light-hearted, irreverent and uninhibited look back at the life of one of the most consummate musicians in jazz and one of its most colourful and entertaining characters.
