Recorded at Rudy Van Gelder Studio,
Englewood Cliffs, NJ, December 30, 1960

Hawkins was one of the main inspirations of his fellow tenor Eddie “Lockjaw” Davis, so it was logical that they would one day meet up in the recording studio. This record has many fine moments from these two highly competitive jazzmen, particularly the lengthy title cut and a heated tradeoff on “In a Mellow Tone,” on which Davis goes higher but Hawkins wins on ideas.
