Blue Gene is an album by saxophonist Gene Ammons recorded in 1958 and originally released on the Prestige label

“Another of the mid-1950s Ammons studio jam sessions for Prestige, Blue Gene lives up to its title by utilizing blues changes as the basis for three of its four selections. Pianist Mal Waldron wrote all these lines and the minor-key ballad, "Hip Tip." Ammons was one of the most expressive saxophonists and, in Idrees Sulieman and Pepper Adams, he found soulmates among the other horns. Each man had jammed with Gene on Prestige previously.” - Concord Music
