This two-LP set combines together the music from Two Trumpets and The Young Bloods. The former session has both Donald Byrd and Art Farmer on trumpets in a sextet with altoist Jackie McLean and pianist Barry Harris while the latter is actually stronger, featuring Byrd, altoist Phil Woods and pianist Al Haig in a quintet. These blowing sessions (typical of Prestige’s albums of the 1950s) have their enjoyable moments with Farmer and Woods taking overall solo honors.
