The lineup was something like Murderers' Row of the 1927 Yankees-Dizzie Gilsespie on trumpet, and Sonny Rollins and Sonny Stitt on tenor saxes. Diz plays with his usual flair, but it's the tenor men who tear it up here. Their amazing flights of fancy on "The Eternal Triangle" mayb be the greatest sax duel ever recorded. The result of their battle is a dead-even tie, which makes the listener the winner. This is some of the most explosive jazz to come out of the hard-bop era.
