Trombonist Al Grey and tenor saxophonist Billy Mitchell were the original stars of this 1957 recording, an offshoot of Dizzy Gillespie's then-running big band. Within a couple of years of this date, however, trumpeter Lee Morgan and pianist Wynton Kelly emerged with careers of their own and today are the most well-known musicians to have been involved in the session.

Due to the presence of Benny Golsen and Roger Spotts as arrangers (and composers of six out of eight tunes), this session comes off as more of a little-big-band event than the kind of hard-bop situation which Morgan in particular would soon come to epitomise. The four horns are lush and confidant, creating the illusion of a much larger ensemble, and each musician is carefully featured in turn.

Personnel: Lee Morgan (trumpet), Wynton Kelly (piano), Billy Mitchell (tenor saxophone), Billy Root (baritone saxophone), Al Grey (trombone), Paul West (bass), Charles Persip (drums)
