Eugene "Jug" Ammons (April 14, 1925 – July 23, 1974) also known as "The Boss," was an American jazz tenor saxophonist, and the son of boogie-woogie pianist Albert Ammons. Born in Chicago, Illinois, Ammons studied music with instructor Walter Dyett at DuSable High School. Ammons began to gain recognition while still at high school when in 1943, at the age of 18, he went on the road with trumpeter King Kolax's band.

B1. The Five O'Clock Whistle. Up Tight! ‎ (LP, Album, Mono).

Gene Ammons: Up Tight! on JAZZ. FM91 Gene Ammons’ Boss Tenor is arguably the tenor saxophonist’s best known and most critically acclaimed album. Recorded on October 17, 1961 for Prestige, Up Tight! featured Ammons with a sound that seemed bigger, fatter and more gospel-influenced than past outings. Joining Ammons on the date were pianist Walter Bishop, J. bassist Art Davis and pianist Art Taylor, with Ray Barretto on conga. The personnel remained the same on October 18, except for a switch at the piano: Patti Bown replaced Walter Bishop, Jr. Up Tight! has a tough, sad history, which makes the recording that much more meaningful. Ammons recorded the album between prison terms.
