Tough 'Duff is the second album by organist Jack McDuff recorded in 1960 and released on the Prestige label. Jack McDuff switched from bass to organ in the 1950s and left near-poverty in Chicago for fame and celebrity in New York. Featured first with Willis Jackson and then with his own band, McDuff built a huge following almost immediately. Tough ‘Duff, his second LP as a leader, was the first of two meetings with Jimmy Forrest. Their organ/tenor interplay is remarkable throughout; Forrest is at the top of his game. The program is solid mainstream fare which leads to a minimum of confusion and maximum of swing.
