Two talented but forgotten bop-based improvisers are featured on this quintet set: Hal McKusick (who switches between his Paul Desmond-inspired alto, tenor and cool-toned clarinet) and trombonist Billy Byers. Accompanied by pianist Eddie Costa, bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Charlie Persip, the two horns get rare opportunities to stretch out on material ranging from "Saturday Night" and an early version of Dizzy Gillespie's "Con Alma" to "I'm Glad There Is You" and three McKusick originals. This obscure Prestige session (reissued on CD in the OJC series) should interest straightahead jazz fans.
