In the hard-bopping late-50s, Prestige Records played host to a number of sessions featuring two or more stars locking horns on the same instrument. Of the Three Trumpets spotlighted here, two (Donald Byrd and Art Farmer) were among the elect of their generation, while big-band veteran Idrees Sulieman (who at 33 was about five years older than Farmer and nine years Byrd's senior) had gained an "inside" reputation through his work in 1947 on Thelonious Monk's first recordings as a leader. With crackling exchanges on blues and rhythm changes, Three Trumpets is a prime example of high-voltage studio jamming.
