Johnny Griffin and Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis locked horns and raised a little hell during this exciting blowing session that took place at the CafГ© Montmartre in Copenhagen on July 10, 1984. They were aided and abetted by pianist Harry Pickens, bassist Curtis Lundy, and drummer Kenny Washington -- the same rhythm section that had performed with Griff at the Berlin Friedrichstadtpalast nearly a month earlier. The original "Tough Tenors" formula dates back to the early '60s when Griff and Jaws collaborated on a series of definitive, mainstream two-tenor albums. This live reunion date is a marvel of spontaneous combustion; the horns cavort and jostle, barking and purling with joyous abandon. Sadly, this recording lands near the end of the Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis' discography. He was recorded in Europe by producer Norman Granz in 1985, retreated back to the U.S. and passed away in Culver City, CA in November of 1986. This is a reissue of Storyville (#8298), released in 1998 as Tough Tenors Back Again!
