Soul Summit is an album by saxophonist Gene Ammons with vocalist Etta Jones and organist Jack McDuff recorded in 1961 and 1962 and released on the Prestige label.[2]

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review stated "Some of the first records Prestige released after Gene Ammons' incarceration were Soul Summit and Soul Summit, Vol. 2, two albums whose slapdash nature was partially hidden by their presentation as all-star jam sessions. The tunes, recorded in four sessions in 1961 and 1962, are a widely varied lot in terms of material, arrangements, and accompanists... Like most of the Prestige albums of this period, Soul Summit, Vol. 2 is uneven, but it contains enough gems to make it worthwhile".[1]
