Allmusic 4/5 stars[1]

Blow Arnett, Blow (also rereleased as Go Power!!!) is an album by saxophonists Arnett Cobb and Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis recorded in 1959 for the Prestige label.[2]

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review awarded the album 4 stars and stated "Arnett Cobb's debut for Prestige and his first recording as a leader in three years (due to a serious car accident in 1956) is an explosive affair. Cobb is matched up with fellow tough tenor Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis, and there are plenty of sparks set off by their encounter".[1]
