This release contains the J.J. Johnson and Kai Winding Quintets third recording as a unit a live performance recorded at New Yorks prestigious Birdland club on October 17, 1954. This outstanding concert was only previously available on a limited Japanese edition that is currently out of stock.

In addition to the performance at Birdland we have decided to include the outstanding New York sessions recorded on April 2, 4 & 6, 1956 as bonus tracks. These dates boast an eight man trombone section featuring Bob Alexander, Eddie Bert, Urbie Green, Jimmy Cleveland, Tom Mitchell and Bart Varsalona. Piano giant Hank Jones and drummer Osie Johnson were also on hand for all of the dates, while the stalwart veterans Milt Hinton (April 2 & 4) and Ray Brown (April 6) traded off on bass. Percussion legend Candido Camero was also present for the April 6 date.
