A fine pairing of autographs: Diz signs in red ball-point pen on the back cover, alongside his long-time stablemate, tenorist James Moody, who has signed playfully in black marker pen, adorning the "J" in his first name with the keys and bell of a saxophone and the "M" of his surname with his signature spectacles.

This is the first pressing of an album released on the short-lived Tribute label, and that continues to be a real sleeper in the Diz discography, a funky period-piece that was clearly aimed at getting him some notice from the younger generation. Backbeat, electric bass and tambourine riffs are the order of the day. Moody supplies tenor and flute interludes, and there is a picture of fellow trumpeter Joe Newman on the back cover, so he was presumably involved. Occasionally a gospel choir make an appearance. The arranger was filmmaker and composer Ed Bland, who directed the 1959 film The Cry of Jazz. A fascinating and decidedly obscure addition to the Gillespie catalogue.
