This collection contains all of the Al & Zoot quintet and sextet studio recordings with one exception which Lone-Hill fans will understand: a February 1961 New York session originally issued as Either Way. The date featured the two saxophonists joined by Mose Allison on piano, Bill Crow on bass, and Gus Johnson on drums. Singer Cecil "Kid Haffey" Collier was also added on three tracks.
That complete session, consisting of more than half an hour of music, already appeared in the series on the CD entitled Zoot Sims-Al Cohn "The Hoagy Carmichael Sessions and More" (DIS-103277 / 9.95 EUR), where it was coupled with an obscure Cohn-Sims septet session originally issued under the name of pianist Elliot Lawrence.
