The Lion, Camel and Child suite forms the first 19 minutes of the album. Griffith says it was inspired by Nietzsche’s three metamorphoses from Thus Spoke Zarathustra: Metamorphosis is concerned with what propels each new phase of human growth so it seemed fitting to frame this as a suite – each track individual unto itself yet when listened to as a whole represents the arc of the personal struggle to know more and be more. The Lion is a symbol of virtue and tenacity that breaks free of its self-imposed cage.

The Lion, Camel & Child by the Johnny Griffith Quintet. Long ago, Friedrich Nietzsche laid out the evolution of the human spirit with a useful metaphor: the concept of three metamorphoses, in which the camel, lion, and child come to represent the phases of development or arrival. Now saxophonist Johnny Griffith has adapted that concept for his own musical purposes. Each movement of this album’s title suite captures the inherent qualities of Nietzsche’s stages.
