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.

AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow:
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. With organist Wild Bill Davis, bassist George Duvivier, and drummer Arthur Edgehill keeping the proceedings heated, Cobb and Davis tangle on a variety of basic material, alternating uptempo romps such as “Go Power” and “Go Red Go” with slightly more sober pieces highlighted by “When I Grow Too Old to Dream.” This is a great matchup (reissued on CD through the OJC imprint) that lives up to its potential (https://www.allmusic.com/album/blow-arnett-blow-mw0000110414).
