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.
