The first of the Gene Ammons all-star jam sessions (Lou Donaldson, Art Farmer) on Prestige, the two long tracks "Woofin' and Tweetin'" (blues) and "Juggernaut" ("I Got Rhythm") were originally issued as one side each of a 10-inch LP. When they were put out on 12-inch they were combined with some of the classic Ammons Sonny Stitt battles from the time these two tenor saxophone giants co-led their small band in 1950-51. "Blues Up and Down" was one of Prestige's early big sellers as a two-part 78.

Woofin' and Tweetin', Juggernaut, Blues Up and Down (3 takes), You Can Depend On Me (2 takes), Stringin' the Jug, New Blues Up and Down, plus CD bonus tracks Bye Bye, When I Dream of You, A Lover Is Blue

with Art Farmer, Lou Donaldson, Freddie Redd, Addison Farmer, Kenny Clarke, Duke Jordan, Tommy Potter, Jo Jones, Junior Mance, Gene Wright, Wesley Landers, Billy Massey, Al Outcalt, Charlie Bateman, Teddy Stewart
