Live concert recording of Dizzy and Bird from Town Hall not previously known to have been recorded. With audio restoration by Ted Kendell, the sound is excellent. This is a discovered recording of Dizzy and Bird at bebop's inception - the equivalent of finding the Buddy Bolden cylinder. Also features Don Byas, Al Haig, Curley Russell and Max Roach. 180 Gram + Color vinyl, in 1200 gold foil numbered Gatefold tip-on jackets with extensive liner notes, plus two sided insert with additional text.

 "Intro," "Bebop," "A Night In Tunisia," "Groovin' High," "Salt Peanuts," "Hot House" and "52nd Street Theme."
