This 1980 recording released for the first time — “Formidable” from a 1959 session and five numbers from a 1963 McLean set. While “Formidable” has a strong quintet (with altoist Jackie McLean, trumpeter Donald Byrd, pianist Walter Davis, bassist Paul Chambers, and drummer Pete La Roca), the 1963 session has the recording debut of drummer Tony Williams along with strong contributions from Byrd, pianist Herbie Hancock (then also near the beginning of his career), and bassist Butch Warren. The latter unit sticks to group originals by Byrd, Hancock, and McLean, and the music ranges from catchy funk and hard bop to strong hints of the avant-garde.

Alto Saxophone – Jackie McLean
Bass – Butch Warren
Drums – Tony Williams, Billy Higgins
