Bebop pioneer Howard McGhee was in and out of prison on drug charges for a good part of the 1950s, so there isn’t much on record representing that decade. In fact he hadn’t been near the studio in two years prior to this 1955 recordings, hence the title. He was anything but rusty, though: McGhee sounds re-energized here, possibly due to the inspiring presence of session musicians like Sahib Shihab on baritone and alto sax and Duke Jordan on piano.
