By the time of this date, Friday had become "session day" at Prestige. Bob Weinstock would put together all-star groups and they would jam on blues, standards, and originals based on standards, especially "I Got Rhythm." Ammons was a frequent participant during his time as a contracted Prestige artist. This spirited date was climaxed by the end of "Madhouse" ("What Is This Thing Called Love") when, after trading "fours" and "twos," Ammons, Art Farmer, and Jackie McLean "wail" (as they used to say back then) simultaneously for a chorus.
