"Brothers" was a generic term, particularly for the tenor saxophonists (Getz, Sims, Al Cohn, Herbie Steward) who had played "Four Brothers" in Woody Herman's band during the 1947-49 period, and generally for any of the young white tenor saxophonists of the Lester Young persuasion, i.e., Allen Eager and Brew Moore. The five-tenor date was a one-of-a-kind landmark session (Getz with Sims, Cohn, Eager, and Moore); the Sims and Cohn with Kai Winding date predicted the two-tenor group Zoot and Al would lead from 1957

with Al Cohn, Allen Eager, Brew Moore, Walter Bishop, Gene Ramey, Charlie Perry, Kai Winding, George Wallington, Percy Heath, Art Blakey
