This album is one of the best early examples of percussion-oriented albums.

However, from a recording standpoint, this album is of particular note due to the fact it was likely the first documented use of two-track recording ever conducted by Blue Note. That being said, the first Blue Note stereo album to be released was likely Cannonball Adderley’s "Somethin’ Else" in 1958.
